Anne Akiko Meyers Double Stradivarius Performance

Written by Cary Burkett, Arts & Culture Desk and WITF Host | Mar 6, 2012 1:54 PM

The newest recording by violinist Anne Akiko Meyers has immediately gone to number 1 on the classical charts. A big part of the attraction is her performance of the so-called Bach “Double” concerto for two violins. Meyers, who possesses two famous Stradivarius violins, plays both parts, using a different Strad on each part. 

You can hear our interview with Anne Akiko Meyers below, and get a sample of what the two famous violins sound like together. 

The recording also includes two Violin Concertos by Johann Sebastian Bach and some of his best loved shorter pieces in arrangements for violin and orchestra.
