In 2021, together with the whole world, we celebrated the 100th anniversary since the birth of a wonderful composer, Astor Piazzolla.
Since the beginning of the musical journey of Kremerata Baltica, we have loved to perform his music. Gidon Kremer devoted many years to the study of his music, performing it all over the world and contributing significantly to the popularization of his music. Today, Astor Piazzolla is a household name. We are glad that we also had the chance to be a part of this history.
At our tribute to Astor Piazzolla in 2021, we performed with wonderful soloists and specialists of his music. Violinist Gidon Kremer, bandoneonist Per Arne Glorvigen and vibraphonist Andrei Pushkarev are musicians who bring his music to life on stage. Our "Artist in Residence" Georgijs Osokins was also joined us in this celebration.
During our "Hommage à Piazzolla" we visited Paris, Prague, Cēsis, Cunewalde, Elba, Pistoia, Dolomiti, Stresa, Lockenhaus.
