In this episode of CLASSICAL CLASSROOM, Anne Akiko Meyers is the fan rather than the star

Bookmark and Share

Arguably, Anne Akiko Meyers is darn admirable herself. The violinist has scads of fans. She's been Billboard's #1 classical artist. I mean, she's been on Morning Edition AND All Things Considered. But in this episode, Meyers is the fan rather than the star. She tells stories about getting to work with composers she idolizes, and what happened when she did – and didn't – dare to ask them to do things differently. Valuable life lessons, people.
