    Default Gidon Kremer and Kramerata

    Guess what folks? I'm going to see Gidon Kremer and Kremerata at the Toronto centre for the arts tomorrow night! Seeing how he was a pupil of David Oistrakh, I'm very thirlled to see how he performs. Has anyone else been to one of his concerts before? How's his musicianship?

    Check youtube for a pre-impression. I like him very much. His Ernst symphonic etude Nº 6 is the best available.

    I have heard recordings of his concerts and he is probably the most powerful violinist I have ever heard.

    You can download an incomplete video of Shostakovich's 1st played by Kremer in the Proms, it's available in the Emule networks.

    So, I'm back from the concert, and I was amazed beyond words. Being 60 years old, he's a very thin man, but his violin resonated with such a brilliant sound. I was in the second row, so i heard and saw everything perfectly. Amazing performer and amazing chamber orchestra. If he ever comes to toronto again, I would gladly see him again.
