The 35th release by violinist Anne Akiko Meyers features music by Maurice Ravel, Karol Szymanowski, and Einojuhani Rautavaara. Fantasia is not only a musical delight, it is a incredible collaboration between soloist, orchestra, and conductor. Each work presents different moods and challenges, graciously met by all, and a perfect vehicle for Meyers and her legendary violin.

WBAA's John Clare spoke to Anne Akiko about playing Ravel again, performing Szymanowski in Poland, and commissioning the final work by Rautavaara.
