The Grammy-Award winning chamber orchestra Kremerata Baltica will perform in Baku at the Heydar Aliyev Center on June 9.
The soloists of the Baku concert will be the founder of the Lithuanian Kremerata, violinist Dzeraldas Bidva and a well-known cellist, winner of multiple music competitions Giedre Dirvanauskaite.
The concert will also feature the Baku Chamber Orchestra, to be conducted by Azerbaijan`s honored artist Fuad Ibrahimov, who has a creative friendship with Kremerata Baltica.
Founded in 1997 by renowned violinist Gidon Kremer, the Kremerata Baltica Chamber Orchestra is considered to be one of Europe`s most prominent international ensembles. The orchestra includes 23 talented young musicians from Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. Maestro Kremer intentionally selected young, enthusiastic musicians to stave off the dreaded 'orchestritis' that afflicts many professional orchestral players. Essential to Kremerata Baltica`s artistic personality is its creative approach to programming, which often ranges beyond the mainstream and has given rise to world premieres of works by composers such as Arvo Pärt, Giya Kancheli, Peteris Vasks, Leonid Desyatnikov and Alexander Raskatov.
Kremerata Baltica first appeared on stage of Austria`s Lockenhaus Chamber Music Festival and since then has become well known for its energy and joy in playing. The orchestra was formed as an educational project promoting the cultural life of the Baltics. Since its establishment Kremerata Baltica has played in more than 50 countries, performing in 600 cities and giving more than 1000 concerts worldwide. The orchestra's wide-ranging and carefully chosen repertoire is also showcased in its numerous and much-praised recordings. The Kremerata Baltica also serves as a medium to share Gidon Kremer`s rich artistic experience with the new generation and, at the same time, to promote and inspire the musical and cultural life of the Baltics.
