The Violin Channel, in conjunction with Avie Records, is this week giving away five personally autographed copies of American violinist Anne Akiko Meyers' new CD: "Shining Night." The disc features Anne’s collaborators, Italian pianist Fabio Bidini and Grammy Award-winning guitarist Jason Vieaux.

The album is named for Morten Lauridsen's arrangement of his popular choral work Sure on this Shining Night for violin and piano, written specifically for Meyers.

The other repertoire on the release includes J.S. Bach’s famous Air on G, Corelli’s  La Folia arranged for violin and guitar, Manuel Ponce's Estrellita (Little Star), Paganini's Cantabile, the Aria from Villa-Lobos’ Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5, and Piazzolla’s Histoire du Tango. Additionally, the 20th century is represented by arrangements of Duke Ellington’s (In My) Solitude and Elvis Presley's Can’t Help Falling in Love.

"It all started when I asked Morten Lauridsen if he had written any duos, and led to these arrangements, Sure on This Shining Night and Dirait-On," Anne Akiko Meyers wrote. "Shining Night is based on a poem by James Agee, and describes a man going on a walk and thinking back over his life."

"This collection of pieces that metaphorically begins in the morning and explores the vast musical history through Baroque, Romantic, Popular, and current genres," she added. "The common themes throughout the music reflect on one’s relationship with nature, love, and poetry. And how in dark and challenging times, kindness profoundly affects our souls and opens infinite possibilities when living our lives."

"This is dedicated to all the duos in the universe, including my Jason."

 

 

Violinist Anne Akiko Meyers has collaborated with many of today’s most important composers, conductors, and instrumentalists, resulting in significant new works for the violin and 40 recordings.
