Kremerata Baltica Festival 2020

During our annual festival in Jurmala, Latvia we have performed two concerts in September 2020 with the soloists Gidon Kremer, Giedrė Dirvanauskaitė, Georgijs Osokins, Hugo Ticciati, Luciana Mancini and Andrei Pushkarev.

The programme of the Kremerata Baltica Festival included two world premieres – the world-renowned Lithuanian pianist and contemporary music enthusiast Andrius Žlabis has created a new piece for Gidon Kremer and “Kremerata Baltica” entitled “Kaleidoscope of the lost time”. Arturs Maskats, who enjoys a bit of the nostalgic ache, has composed music for poems by Emily Dickinson in the Concerto “Summer Dreams” for Voice, Violin and Chamber Orchestra. This work is an international collaboration – written for Kremerata Baltica Orchestra in cooperation with the Swedish ensemble O/Modernt, who will be the next performers of “Summer Dreams”.
