When Gidon Kremer won Moscow’s highly coveted International Tchaikovsky Competition in 1970, conductor Herbert von Karajan dubbed him ‘the greatest violinist in the world’. Audiences around the world still concur with this illustrious assessment for Kremer’s sustained excellence across an unprecedented range of styles and forms. To celebrate his 50th birthday, Kremer launched his own chamber orchestra Kremerata Baltica, hand-picked from the most promising young musicians in the Baltic States. Together they are a worldwide phenomenon renowned for superb craftsmanship and uniquely daring concert programs that set great classics in stark contrast to modern rarities.
