Label: eOne Music
Anne Akiko Meyers' rendition of Bach's double concerto is something of an exercise in vanity; she plays both solo parts, one on each of her two Stradivarius violins. The top part is played on the infamous "Molitor" Stradivarius from 1697, which is thought to have been owned by Napoleon and was picked by Meyers for a cool $3.6 million. The second part, overdubbed with her 1730 "Royal Spanish" Strad, was recorded some months later. Is it a shtick? Undoubtedly. Still, Meyers' approach is a testament to her creativity and a great document of two famous, priceless instruments
