Anne Akiko Meyers has amassed a multitude of fans and admirers for her exquisitely curated recordings, often exploring her passion for new music, and old music in new guises. Her quest for creative collaborations has inspired countless commissions and world-premieres, with the results infusing Shining Night, an album that embraces themes of love, poetry, and nature. Meyers’ fruitful association with composer Morten Lauridsen led to the arrangement of his popular choral work Sure on this Shining Night, lending its name to the recording’s title. From there springs forth an album spanning the history of music through Baroque, Romantic, popular, and current genres. Her collaborators are pianist Fabio Bidini and guitarist Jason Vieaux.
