Notes & Reviews:

Gidon Kremer celebrates his 60th birthday in 2007 - he is, and has always been, one of the most headstrong and original artists in the music business and has been hailed once by Herbert von Karajan as the world's best violinist. His return to J. S. Bach's Partitas is a major event. Kremer's first recording of these works was released almost a quarter of a century ago, and he hasn't played the partitas in public for over twenty years. Those who have followed Gidon Kremer's artistic development over the past 25 years will note how much his tone and articulation has changed. The new rendering displays Kremer's very personal sense of spontaneity and a readiness to take risks. In a very personal way the film "Back to Bach" shows Gidon Kremer's most important encounters with Bach. It accompanies the famous violin virtuoso showing rehearsals, recording sessions and discussions with a few trusted confidants, as well as rare archival footage. In the early 1980s, after being declared a persona non grata in the Soviet Union, Kremer moved to the West and made a recording of the solo partitas. The Phillips record went down in music history and for decades was the benchmark in the music guild. The young virtuoso was catapulted to fame virtually overnight in the Western world.
