Gidon Kremer and Astor Piazzolla: this legendary combination of two of the 20th century most influential musicians began with Kremer’s first recording of the Argentine tango master’s music in 1996, which achieved pop level sales in many countries and sparked a Piazzolla craze in global classical music circles. Since then, Kremer and Kremerata Baltica have released six further Piazzolla recordings and toured with his music around the world. To celebrate Piazzolla’s centenary (and Kremer’s 75th and the Kremerata’s 25th birthdays) Gidon Kremer and Kremerata Baltica bring this music back in 2021.
“You can sense through his music an experience that makes you at the same time joyful and sad. And saying these two words, ‘joyful’ and ‘sad,’ I could say as well that the striking combination of two extreme emotions go together like they go in Franz Schubert’s music, in Astor’s music. I know very few composers where you can feel it in such a passionate way.”
