“Gidon Kremer’s incandescent violin playing illuminates any style of music he chooses to focus on.”
-The New Yorker
Violin legend Gidon Kremer performs 24 Preludes by 20th century Polish-born Soviet composer Mieczyslaw Weinberg, whose music shares common ground with that of his friend and mentor Shostakovich, while maintaining its originality by incorporating myriad musical styles. A champion of Weinberg, Kremer gives the first U.S. performance of his transcription of the composer’s technically and emotionally complex score.
