Established by the famous violinist Gidon Kremer in 1997, Kremerata Baltica was at first entirely comprised of young musicians from the Baltic States of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. Founded as an educational project with a long-term vision, this highly talented group of musicians quickly established itself as one of the best international chamber orchestras in the world! Over the past 18 years, the ensemble has toured over 50 countries, 600 cities and played over 1000 concerts in Europe alone. They have compiled an extensive discography, and collaborated with some of the most renowned soloists and conductors, among them Jessye Norman, Vadim Repin, Yo-Yo Ma, Sir Simon Rattle and Vladimir Ashkenazy.
Essential to Kremerata Baltica’s artistic personality is its creative approach to programming. The programme of their second concert at the 29th MIMF, titled New Seasons , ranges from new interpretations of Vivaldi and Piazzolla to the Asian premiere of Philip Glass’s Violin Concerto No. 2 . Don’t miss this fascinating display of contemporary music!
