For her latest release, violinist Anne Akiko Meyers commissioned a work by Einojuhani Rautavaara called "Fantasia." It would end up being his final masterpiece; Rautavaara died July 27, 2016. Anne also recorded the Violin Concerto No.1 of Karol Szymanowski and "Tzigane" by Maurice Ravel. Fantasia marks Meyer's 35th studio album and captures incredible virtuosity and poetic color with these iconic works. Meyers, one of the most in-demand violinists in the world, is known for her passionate performances, purity of sound, deeply poetic interpretations, innovative programming and commitment to commissioning significant new works from living composers.
