In celebration of Gidon Kremer’s 60th birthday, Deutsche Grammophon released a substantial double-disc compilation in 2007, The Many Musics of Gidon Kremer, a highly rewarding retrospective that pays tribute to this versatile violinist’s phenomenal talent, wide range of interests, and depth of experience. A seasoned virtuoso who has been active for over three decades, Kremer has proved himself time and again in the genres of the concerto and chamber music and has carved a special niche for himself in recent years as a conductor of popular fare with his handpicked chamber orchestra, KREMERata BALTICA. As part of the label’s ongoing “Portrait of the Artist” series, this double-disc package is drawn from Kremer’s discography and from previously unreleased live recordings, covering several performances that have become touchstones for his fans.
