Gidon Kremer, violin
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky – Romeo and Juliet, TH 42, ČW 39
Mieczysław Weinberg – Violin Concerto in G minor, Op. 67
Antonin Dvořák – Symphony No. 8 in G major, Op. 88, B. 163
Violinist Gidon Kremer finds “a source of an unlimited inspiration” in Mieczysław Weinberg, a Polish-born, Soviet composer who followed in the shadow of his mentor and friend, Dmitri Shostakovich. The progress of an outsider working a century earlier is echoed in Antonín Dvořák, who indulged in glorious sounds of nature and Czech country life in his Eighth Symphony.
