No. 309, November/December 2022
Our cover story this issue is an interview with the musically intrepid violinist Anne Akiko Meyers, who will be debuting a new work—Blue Electra, inspired by Amelia Earhart—by Michael Daugherty. This is the most recent in a long line of contemporary pieces commissioned by Meyers, who has for many years inspired and championed the work of today’s living composers. Elsewhere in this issue, you’ll find a special focus on vintage instruments and bows, and a holiday gift guide for the electric player in your life.
