"Every successful concert, next day is already ‘the past’. We must always look forward, only then will we succeed in shaping the future."

– Gidon Kremer 




Founded in 1997 by renowned violinist Gidon Kremer, the Grammy-Award winning chamber orchestra Kremerata Baltica is considered to be one of Europe’s most prominent international ensembles








Comprising twenty-three outstanding young musicians from Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia – Kremerata Baltica captivates its audience with playing of unrestrained joy and exuberance and with the variety and vitality of its programming.








Gidon Kremer describes Kremerata Baltica as a musical democracy:

“open-minded, self-critical, a continuation of my musical spirit. Its performances should always deliver a sense of spontaneous music-making that makes a concert dramatic and sensuous, a continuation of the creative process".






‘The Kremerata Baltica play as if each note is a human life: you don’t often hear that.’

– Norman Lebrecht
