“Perhaps the most exquisite quality of Mejias’ playing is his ability to go inside the music and create his completely own sound world”
I am very anxious to give you my very high opinion on Anton Mejias, everyone has recognized his very special talent. Something in his Bach is very unique– not peculiar, just very natural and I think he could be remembered as one of the great Bach players of our time.”
– Gary Graffman
