About The Artist

In a program not for the musically faint of heart, Anne Akiko Meyers in her Ravinia debut boldly goes into rarefied territory, smashing boundaries without ever abandoning elegant musicianship. The American Record Guide cited “her peerless mastery and vivid imagination,” adding that “there seems to be no limit to the colors she can draw from her instrument.” Performing on a Stradivarius violin said to have once belonged to Napoleon Bonaparte, she produces a sound as beautiful as her own stunning stage presence.
