Notes & Reviews:

The works included in this program are musical mementos of Gidon Kremer's time in Prague. At the dawn of his career as one of the most brilliant violinists of our time, Kremer (a Latvian by birth) was employed there as an ambassador of the Soviet Ministry for Culture. His virtuosic playing and his freedom of expression were the delight of his patrons in the welcoming communist countries. On this release in Praga's audiophile Genuine Stereo Lab series, Kremer is accompanied by Oleg Maisenberg and his wife Elena Kremer in works by Schubert, Franck, Ravel, Bartók and a short piece by Alfred Schnittke, then still only hand written.
