About

These pieces are remembrances of some of Gidon Kremerís passings through Prague, during Soviet times. Kremer was then at the dawn of his career, one of the most brilliant for a violinist in our time!

As an ambassador for the Soviet Ministry for Culture in the 'brother countries', he owed his mentor, David Oistrakh, a sort of freedom, demonstrated here in this CD programme. His absolutely perfect touch and his freedom of expression delighted his patrons in the welcoming communist countries.

The short piece by Alfred Schnittke, then still hand-written only, was an example of his wish to play scores not only of the classics from Bach to Stravinsky and to help other musicians through chamber music sessions. This record allows us to hear the fabled G B Guadagnini inherited from his grandfather.

Works by Schubert, Franck, Ravel, Bartok and Schnittke.
