Dmitri Shostakovich (1906-1975)

Gidon Kremer – violin and direction
Yuri Bashmet – viola
Andrei Pushkarev – percusion
Kremerata Baltica

Two great string soloists – Gidon Kremer and Yuri Bashmet – team up for a special Shostakovich celebration. Their new album will feature the Violin Sonata op. 134 and the Viola Sonata op. 147, both newly arranged for soloist and chamber orchestra.

Joined by the world-renowned ensemble Kremerata Baltica, Kremer and Bashmet deliver powerful interpretations of these little-known works – the rich string orchestra sound of these skilfully crafted arrangements will strongly appeal to the audience.

A masterful tribute to the great Russian composer in his anniversary year.
