From hundreds of new releases in 2018, this is by far the best of the bunch! Mirror In Mirror reflects the genius of violinist Anne Akiko Meyers, her creativity, tone, and commitment to new music. Music from Philip Glass, John Corigliano, Arvo Part, Jakub Ciupinski, and Morten Lauridsen are featured in new ways, and the original sound Maurice Ravel had for his Tzigane is a revelation!

There’s an old joke about the “definition” of a string quartet: a good violinist, a bad violinist, someone who used to play violin, and someone who hates violins! It’s a funny stereotype – but the string quartet has sparked the imagination of composers since Alessandro Scarlatti and was perfected by Joseph Haydn.

A study in 2013 from UC Berkeley looked at how the human brain reacts to music. According to scientist Stephen Palmer, we associate anything music with a particular hue from the color spectrum. Whether it’s a classical work or pop, we automatically make music-color connections based on how the various melodies make us feel.

We'll hear works based on primary colors: Blue, Red, and Yellow; plus feature Rainbow Body, Synethésie, and a Nick Drake song, Pink Moon!

Composers include Jennifer Higdon, John Corigliano, and Joan Tower.
