Bookmark and Share

Violinist Anne Akiko Meyers explores and celebrates the facets of love with a new album of works for violin and orchestra. The recording features Bernstein's Serenade and ten world premieres. Serenade is based on a reading of Plato's Symposium, in which seven ancient Greek philosophers debate the meaning of love. Meyers is a champion of living composers and commissioned seven renowned composer-arrangers to create ten works for violin and orchestra from love-inspired music from stage and film.

The Bernstein: Serenade (after Plato's Symposium) (29:28) from Anne Akiko Meyers - Serenade: The Love Album EOne, w/London Symphony Orchestra / Keith Lockhart is a WFMT: Chicago - New release of the Week.
