In demand as both a performer and a composer, Edgar Meyer has formed a role in the music world unlike any other. Hailed by the New Yorker as “...the most remarkable virtuoso in the relatively unchronicled history of his instrument”, Mr. Meyer’s unparalleled technique and musicianship in combination with his gift for composition have brought him to the fore, where he is appreciated by a vast, varied audience. His uniqueness in the field was recognized by a MacArthur Award in 2002. Featured among his many recordings is “The Goat Rodeo Sessions” where Mr. Meyer joined Yo-Yo Ma, mandolinist Chris Thile, and fiddler Stuart Duncan. As a composer, Mr. Meyer has carved out a remarkable and unique niche in the musical world. In the Summer of 2012, Mr. Meyer debuted his newest composition, the Double Concerto for Double Bass and Violin, with Joshua Bell. The work premiered at Tanglewood with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, at the Hollywood Bowl with the LA Philharmonic, and at the Aspen Music Festival. On October 6, Mr. Meyer will perform works of Bach and his own compositions on unaccompanied Double Bass.
