  • BACH: Double Concerto in D minor

  • Philip GLASS: Echorus

  • Fanny MENDELSSOHN: String Quartet (arr. for strings) 

A co-presentation of Laguna Beach Live! and the Philharmonic Society of Orange County

Joined by string orchestra and guest performers, Anne Akiko Meyers shares a program titled “Doubles,” which features the fiery interplay of two violins in works such as Bach’s Double Violin Concerto and Handel-Halvorsen-Heifetz’ Passacaglia. The yearning melodies of Philip Glass’ Echorus and Fanny Mendelssohn’s soulful String Quartet bring the program to a close. 

Meyers’ playing is what it always has been: a national treasure. She is a musical wizard, with astonishing access to every kind of expressive color. Whether within a phrase or on just a single note, she can change tone color in a micro-second from smooth grain to rough, from dark to radiant, from thoughtful to assertive. And she can, like magic, bring new work to vibrant life.
