Over the course of more than 30 years of a distinguished career, violinist Gidon Kremer, born in Riga in 1947, has established a worldwide reputation as one of the most original and compelling artists of his generation, praised for his high degree of individualism, his rejection of the well-trodden paths of interpretation, and his search for new possibilities. Gidon Kremer has made more than ... Read more in Amazon's Gidon Kremer Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Piazzolla by Kremer 10 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
A perfect introduction to Piazzolla. It is played by Kremer and friends who are absolutely superb at realising the tango rhythms in a classical style. Can't recommend it enough!

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous Piazzolla 16 Dec 2002
Format:Audio CD
Heard a group playing Piazzolla tangos on Radio 3 and wanted a CD, then had this CD recommended by a friend. It's great; so great I had to give it away as a Christmas present and I'll now have to get another copy. What I like is the way it treads the line between so-called classical and world musics. The rhythms, harmonies and instruments are more insistently involving than most classical but the complexity is still there.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great Hommage. 8 Mar 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Immediately after the release of this Cd Gidon Kremer gave a concert in Royal festival hall & brought the audience to their feet on a number of occasions. he next time he gave a concert a few years later he brought the audience to their knees with despair. his Cd however has the most superb collection of Piazzollas music & a Russian or Polish piece which rarely appears on tango CDs, to my knowledge only 3 times, which is great music to dance to. I absolutely love this CD and highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Purists be damned! 25 Jan 2011
Format:Audio CD
This was the disc that first introduced me to the music of Astor Piazolla. If this was a vinyl LP, I would have worn it out a dozen times by now. For purists it's all wrong but I cannot be rational about my love of this terrific disc. Kremer has assembled a remarkable team of brilliant musicians and they play with such subtlety, love and passion that I just can't get enough of it (even after all these years). Even now, while I type, I have it playing and am hearing details that I just didn't notice last time. At the core of it is Kremer's violin and his almost obsessive caressing of the melodies with a tone so rich and expressive that it carries you along to another world of smoky bars and red wine. Amazing! The pieces are all by Piazolla himself, apart from a wonderful "Hommage" by Jerzy Peterburshsky that is fully worthy of the master. The arrangements are all true in spirit to the originals, although there is a real attempt to revitalise them by a wonderful team of musicians. The result is exhilarating and spontaneous sounding, although I imagine that a great deal of preparation went into the sophisticated arrangements. I must also add that the technical quality of Nonesuch's CD production is exemplary. This is a fine demonstration of the art of recording a small ensemble in a perfect acoustic. The extraordinary "Oblivion" (written for a film) has haunted me for years. Definitely a desert island disc.

This disc is great for anyone who loves Argentinian music. Everyone I play it to is very impressed, and wants to know where I got it.
