Gidon Kremer & Kremerata Baltica celebrate 100 Years of Astor Piazzolla
featuring Per Arne Glorvigen, bandoneon
Gidon Kremer and Astor Piazzolla: this legendary combination of two of the 20th century most influential musicians began with Kremer's first recording of the Argentine tango master's music in 1996, which achieved pop level sales in many countries and sparked a Piazzolla craze in global classical music circles. Since then, Kremer and Kremerata Baltica have released six further Piazzolla recordings and toured with his music around the world.
To celebrate Piazzolla's centenary (and Kremer's 75th and the Kremerata's 25th birthdays) they bring this music back to North America.
