“Kremer and his new string orchestra, made up of extraordinary young players from the Baltic States, are special. They animate everything their bows touch.” —Los Angeles Times
Kremerata Baltica, a chamber orchestra, was created in 1997 by renowned violinist Gidon Kremer, who serves as the orchestra’s artistic director and solo violinist. The high artistic quality of the ensemble is the result of the exceptional talent of the individual musicians and Kremer’s innovative approach to repertoire. Kremerata Baltica is composed exclusively of talented young musicians (average age 27) from the Baltic States and is supported by the Ministries of Culture of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, making the group the de facto cultural ambassadors of the region. Kremerata Baltica won a Grammy Award in 2002, was nominated for another in 2003, records for Nonesuch Records (a Warner Bros. label) and Deutsche Grammophon, and it performs in all the great halls of the world.
