Violinist Anne Akiko Meyers is one of today’s most in-demand classical performers. Beloved by audiences around the world, with a reputation for groundbreaking recital programs and important commissions, ‘Fantasia’ marks her 35th studio album and is one of her most important projects to date. Her latest album captures the rare combination of incredible virtuosity and poetic color with iconic works by Ravel, Rautavaara and Szymanowski. The title track, Fantasia, is Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara’s last major work for violin and orchestra, written for Meyers. She traveled to Finland and worked with the composer on it shortly before he died.
