Gidons Kremers returns to New York at Baryshnikov Arts Center


Violin legend Latvian Gidon Kremer performs the U.S. Premiere of his transcription of Mieczyslaw Weinberg’s richly varied and complex 24 Preludes, originally scored for cello. Kremer is a champion of the Polish-born Soviet composer, whose music shares common ground with that of Shostakovich, while maintaining its originality by incorporating myriad musical styles. The preludes are paired with projections of powerful images by Lithuanian photographer Antanas Sutkus, whose highly expressive art also responds to a particular vision of life in mid-20th century Soviet Union.

When: October 31 and November 1, 2017, at 7:30 pm
Where: Baryshnikov Arts Center, 450 West 37th Street, New York, NY 10018.
