Violinist Anne Akiko Meyers' triumphant label debut on E1 Music titled Smile, highlights a beguiling program of the traditional and new. Stretching the boundaries of the classical recital, Meyers, with fellow Juilliard graduate, pianist Akira Eguchi, turns her renowned talents to Schubert's Fantasie, Op. 159, Arvo Part's Spiegel im Spiegel, the U.S. premiere of the Messiaen Fantasie, Piazzolla's Introduction et Angel and Milonga en Re Tango, two ravishing arrangements of traditional Japanese folk songs, Kojo no Tsuki (Moonlight Over the Ruined Castle) and Haru no Umi (Sea in Spring), as well as startlingly personal renditions of Somewhere Over the Rainbow and Chaplin's Smile.
