‘Gidon Kremer’

As a lover of chamber music, Gidon Kremer has invited two peerless chamber musicians to take part in this concert: the young Russian pianist Anna Vinnitskaya, first laureate of the Queen Elisabeth Competition 2007, and the Lithuanian cellist Giedrè Dirvanauskaite, a member of Kremerata Baltica. In addition to Rakhmaninov's beautiful Trio élégiaque, you will hear works by Alfred Schnittke, a Soviet composer of German origin, and Moisey Weinberg, another Soviet composer, of Polish Jewish origin, who was a close friend of Shostakovich. Three different worlds, but all connected to Russian music, with which Gidon Kremer (who was born in Riga and studied in Moscow under David Oistrakh) feels a particular affinity.
