About

Gidon Kremer returns to the Yellow label after more than a decade with the brand new reference recording of Philip Glass’ Second Violin Concerto – 'The American Seasons', his first solo concerto album in many years. The first Glass Violin Concerto, performed by Kremer and released by DG in 1993, has achieved cult status and has become a staple of DG’s contemporary music catalogue.

Now, this extraordinary follow-up Concerto is at the heart of the repertoire of the Kremerata Baltica. It was performed for the first time in San José, Costa Rica with Gidon Kremer as soloist in August 2013.

The album is completed by works by Arvo Pärt and Giya Kancheli – two composers both closely associated with Gidon Kremer, and who are both set to celebrate milestone 80th birthdays in 2015. Gidon has also added the short piece by the well-known Japanese film composer Shigeru Umebayashi as a tribute to his Japanese friends.
