Notes and Editorial Reviews

This album explores deep connections between the composers and the performers on the recording. It features two world-premiere recordings: a violin concerto written for Anne Akiko Meyers by Mason Bates and the exquisite Lullaby for Natalie by John Corigliano, composed on the occasion of the birth of Anne's first child. Also included is Samuel Barber's seminal Violin Concerto, a work with which Anne made her recording debut at the age of 18. The musical DNA of Samuel Barber flows deeply throughout the entire program. Barber was Corigliano's mentor and Corigliano mentored Mason Bates. Four generations of friendship and shared ideas are captured in this recording, with liner notes written by Corigliano himself.

 Best October 14, 2015 By Mary Lynn H. (San Antonio, TX) See All My Reviews "The reason for this is the Barber and it is superb. The tone, the musical sense, voice are all here. This is beautiful CD. Highly recommend. I have Hahn and Shaham playing the Barber but this is superior. Try this you won't be disappointed." Report Abuse
