Violinist Gidon Kremer and Pianist Daniil Trifonov to Join LA Philharmonic in Concert, 1/14Violinist Gidon Kremer and Pianist Daniil Trifonov to Join LA Philharmonic in Concert, 1/14
by BWW News Desk - Jan 10, 2015

In the course of his distinguished career, Gidon Kremer has established a worldwide reputation as one of the most original and compelling artists of his generation. He has appeared on virtually every major concert stage with the most celebrated orchestras of Europe and America and has collaborated with today's foremost conductors. Kremer's repertoire is unusually extensive, encompassing all of the standard classical and romantic violin works, as well as music by 20th- and 21st-century masters such as Henze, Berg and Stockhausen. He has also championed the works of living Russian and Eastern European composers and has performed many important new compositions, several of them dedicated to him. Kremer has become associated with such diverse composers as Alfred Schnittke, Arvo Pärt, Giya Kancheli, Sofia Gubaidulina, Valentin Silvestrov, Luigi Nono, Aribert Reimann, Peteris Vasks, John Adams, Victor Kissine, Michael Nyman, Philip Glass, Leonid Desyatnikov, and Astor Piazzolla, bringing their music to audiences in a way that respects tradition yet remains contemporary. It would be fair to say that no other soloist of his international stature has done as much for contemporary composers in the past 30 years. An exceptionally prolific recording artist, Kremer has made more than 120 albums, many of which brought him prestigious international awards and prizes in recognition of his exceptional interpretative powers.
