Gidon Kremer is, and has always been, one of the most headstrong and original artists in the music business and he was once hailed by Herbert von Karajan as the world’s best violinist. He celebrated his 60th birthday in 2007 and he has always kept himself young
musically with his spontaneity and a readiness to take risks. In his artistic development over the past 25 years, Kremer often found himself functioning as a crossover figure as he discovered fresh routes through well-trodden paths in music. It was in this spirit, that his fine young ensemble Kremerata Baltica, which he founded by bringing together young musicians from the Baltic states, presents music by Mahler, Shostakovish, Sibelius, Sallinen, Piazzola, Rota and a cycle called “Sempre Primavera” compiled by himself.

Kremerata Baltica is a chamber orchestra consisting of young talented musicians from Baltic countries (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania). It was founded by Latvian violinist Gidon Kremer in 1997.
