Renowned violinist Gidon Kremer formed the chamber orchestra Kremerata Baltica, consisting of young musicians from the Baltic republics (Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania). The ensemble has gained a reputation for its high artistic quality as a result of the exceptional talent of the individual musicians and Kremer’s innovative approach to repertoire. This program features the opportunity to hear Kremer as a solo violinist in pieces by Weinberg and Shostakovich. Kremer serves as the orchestra’s artistic director and violinist. His belief that music can overcome all barriers of language and culture has been brought to life with Kremerata Baltica.
