Bach, Partitas for solo violin
Gidon Kremer plays the Partitas for solo violin No. 1 in B minor, BWV 1002, No. 2 in D minor, BWV 1004 and No. 3 in E major, BWV 1004 by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). Recording from the Pfarrkirche in Lockenhaus, Austria. Born in Riga in 1947, Gidon Kremer is not only one of the leading violinists in the world, but also - thanks to his unquenchable curiosity and search for new impulses - one of the most fascinating musical personalities of our time. His repertoire ranges from Bach to the present, whereby a number of contemporary composers have achieved international recognition through his commitment. Since 1997 Kremer has devoted a large part of his activities to the chamber orchestra Kremerata Baltica, which he founded. The ensemble consists of young musicians from the three Baltic states.
