Meyer’s first composer/performer portrait album debuted at #1 on the Billboard traditional classical chart, where “knife-edge anticipation opens on to unexpected, often ecstatic musical realms, always with a personal touch and imaginatively written for the instruments” (Gramophone Magazine). Her compositions viscerally explore the wide palette of emotionally expressive colors available to each instrument while using traditional and extended techniques inspired by her varied experiences as a contemporary and period instrumentalist. Since embarking on her composition career only six years ago, premieres have included performances by Grammy-winning vocal ensembles Roomful of Teeth and Vox Clamantis, the American Brass Quintet, cellist Amanda Gookin for her Forward Music Project, Sybarite 5, PUBLIQuartet, NOVUS NY of Trinity Wall Street, A Far Cry, the Lorelei Ensemble, the Nu Deco Ensemble in Miami, and a project with the Historical Performance Program at The Juilliard School in response to Haydn’s “Seven Last Words” at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine.
In 2021 she will be the composer-in-residence at the Spoleto Festival that includes a premiere by the St. Lawrence String Quartet, will premiere her viola concerto at the Miller Theater in New York, and her work will be featured in Carnegie Hall and around the country as part of their interactive orchestral Link Up Program.
