Gidon Kremer

Violinist Gidon Kremer was born in Riga, Latvia on February 27, 1947; he began studying music at age four under the tutelage of his father and grandfather, both noted string players in their own right. Three years later he was accepted to the Riga Music School, and at 16 won first prize at the Latvian Republic. Following a tenure studying at the Moscow Conservatory under David Oistrakh, in 1967 Kremer took home top honors in the Queen Elizabeth Competition; he subsequently won first prize in Genoa's Paganini Competition and the International Tchaikovsky Competition as well. Throughout the course of the career that followed, Kremer explored both the classical canon and avant-garde material, working with a vast-ranging series of chamber partners including Martha Argerich, András Schiff, Keith Jarrett and Yo-Yo Ma. In 1981 he founded the Kremerata Musica, an annual chamber music festival in Lockenhaus, Austria; 16 years later he formed the Kremerata Baltica, a string orchestra assembling the finest young talent from the Baltic region. Kremer also assumed control of Yehudi Menuhin's Gstaad Summer Music Festival in 1996. His recordings include performances of the Beethoven, Schumann and Brahms violin concertos as well as more eclectic fare including 1998's Le Cinema, a collection of film music made in conjunction with pianist Oleg Maisenberg. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Please Pandora, what is going on about one of the greatest violists of all times Gidon Kremer? Where are Mozart, Vivaldi, Paganini, or where is Bach, all these mastered by Gidon Kremer and beyond perfection to listen to. I don't think that this kind of repertore that you have chosen for him could be Kremer's choise. Pandora is making him look like a pathetic mere violinist that plays only one thing, and that is such an insult against Mr. Kremer, well, yes He plays piazolla too very perfect by th

Gidon Kremer is a Latvian violinist (emigrated to Germany in 1980), whose repertoire goes well beyond (and well before) tango. Pandora, please get it right.
and now it's Piazzolla and still not Gidon Kremer. Classy job Pandora.

and the bio is of Luigi Nono, not Gidon Kremer.
The spelling of this artist is "Gidon" not "GidEon"
