Anne Akiko Meyers

Meyers made headlines when the 1741 ‘Vieuxtemps’ Guarneri del Gesu, was given to her on lifetime loan. One of the most important violins ever made by Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesù, it belonged to Belgian violinist, Henri Vieuxtemps during the 19th century and is considered to be one of finest violins in existence for its powerfully luxuriant sound and mint state of preservation.

She loves Francois Xavier Tourte (1747-1835) bows and is usually found running around the airport with her backpack violin case strapped to her back.
