Extractions: American violinist Anne Akiko Meyers made her Cincinnati debut 13 years ago in a recital for Matinee Musicale. It took far too long to bring back this dazzling artist, but on Thursday, she made an impressive debut with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra in Music Hall. Her vehicle was Prokofiev's Violin Concerto No. 1, a work that is as dreamlike and Impressionistic as Prokofiev's Second Concerto is full-blooded. What she brought to it was vivid imagination, infusing the concerto's meandering themes with personality and stunning finesse. Paavo Jarvi's program, which included ballet suites by Prokofiev and Ravel, was all about subtlety and orchestral color. No doubt some of the kinks in Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet Suite No. 3, which opened the program, will be ironed out by the time the CSO records it next week for Telarc. But the concluding Suite No. 2 from Ravel's Daphnis et C hloe (also to be recorded was a gorgeous display of orchestral musicianship that had the audience on its feet at the conclusion.

Honolulu Star-Bulletin Features Not only talented, but beautiful as well so much for everyone being created equalRenowned violinist and model anne akiko meyers glided on stage Sunday in http://starbulletin.com/2002/04/09/features/story2.html
Extractions: Special to the Star-Bulletin Not only talented, but beautiful as well so much for everyone being created equal: Renowned violinist and model Anne Akiko Meyers glided on stage Sunday in form-fitting white satin and proceeded to soar through Samuel Barber's Violin Concerto. Meyers played with passion, especially in angular outbursts that set off Barber's famously lyrical melodies. She played the concerto as if it were a duet with maestro Samuel Wong and the Honolulu Symphony, dovetailing into their climaxes, seamlessly sharing lines. In the third movement, a tour de force in perpetual motion, her long fingers fairly flew over the firestorm, and she ended grinning, clearly pleased. Meyers performed on a Vuillaume violin which had an exceptionally large, rich tone reminiscent of mezzo-soprano's throaty lower range. Even Meyers' Vuillaume, however, was occasionally covered by the orchestra; after all, there is only so much one instrument can do when pitted against a full orchestra. Perhaps audiences have been spoiled by carefully mixed recordings. Perhaps some degree of covering is inevitable in live performance; it is certainly preferable to checking climaxes. On Sunday, Meyers and Wong gave Barber's sumptuous climaxes free rein.
