This recital album, played with her usual intelligence and beautiful singing tone, brings together a collection of varied works. They show some of Meyers' range and taste, as well as a disinclination to simply put together a collection of standard fare.
The album begins with Debussy's "Clair de Lune," along with an arrangement of Wagner's "Traume (Dreams)" and Beethoven's Sonata No. 5 for Violin and Piano, before moving to the 'seasons" of the title: spring (the traditional Japanese folksong "Sakura," intriguingly arranged by Gene Pritsker), summer ("Summertime"), autumn (Vernon Duke's "Autumn in New York" and Joseph Kosmo's "Tenderly/Autumn Leaves") and winter (Alfred Schnittke's disturbing take on "Silent Night"). Familiar works by Debussy and Faure round it out.
Pianist Reiko Uchida and harpist Emmanuel Ceysson are fine collaborators. It's all played in ways that grab the brain as well as the ear, and the world needs more of that.

American violinist Anne Akiko Meyers has done it again. Her newest CD "Seasons...dreams" is an amazing tour de force of virtuosity! Like her previous CD "Smile" she has a major classical work to serve as a tent poll, in this case the Beethoven "Spring" Sonata, which she surrounds with other pieces of interest to her. She pulls repertoire from the Great American Songbook (Summertime, Autumn in New York and so on) along with Japanese folk music (VAriations on Sakura Sakura)(You have heard this in every Sushi Bar in America) and it melds together seamlessly. Even Alfred Schitke's arrangement of "Silent Night" fits in as if it were a toy music box winding down.

5 Stars for this record and hopes for hearing her new Stradivarius (the Molitor replacing the Royal Spanish) on another. Maybe the barber Violin Concerto? Anne? Please?

Anne Meyers playing Clair de Lune on violin is so incredibly beautiful that it brings tears to my eyes listening to it.
I also enjoyed the other pieces with the piano and the harp.

I guess my least favorite part of the album were the whimsical arrangements toward the end.. I understand it was
meant to be a totally different reality,, but it broke the spell too soon for me. I would have preferred more of the
incredible sounds of Ms.Meyers.

I didn't know she have Japanese name (or should I say "blood") when I heard her music streamed at AccuRadio, but it just strike my (Japanese) heart and make me feel warm (which Americal may say "cool").
Unfortunately, her record is not sold in Japan. But thanks to Amazon and AccuRadio link, clicking the link on Accurade gets me to Amazon.com (US) - This is COOL.
Including shipping fee, total price is the same as regular CD price in Japan - what is this?
This CD is worth for your click!
