About This Event

Violinist Gidon Kremer has been described as “freakishly brilliant” by The Washington Post. Founded by Kremer, the Grammy Award-winning chamber orchestra Kremerata Baltica is an ensemble of young musicians from the Baltic States of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, who share the musical and cultural life of the Baltics. Maestro Kremer is leading Kremerata Baltica on landmark tours of North America and Europe in this 2016-17 concert season, to celebrate the orchestra’s 20th anniversary and his 70th birthday year. At Koerner Hall they will perform a program entitled “Russia – Masks and Faces” accompanied by visuals by Soviet era artist Maxim Kantor.
