Notes & Reviews:

Estonian violinist Kerem (b.Tallinn, 1981) is familiar as a performer in Britain as well as at home. He is also a prolific composer, with over 100 works to his credit, 3 symphonies among them. The three-movement 3rd Symphonny (2003) and the Lamento for viola and strings (2008 - 9) lie downstream from Shostakovich and Boris Tishchenko, and were inspired by the idea of the struggle of the individual voice against oppressive ideology.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Mihkel Kerem (b. 1981) is from Estonia. He plays the violin as well as composing and has made a career in both areas. This is my first acquaintance with his music. It is intense. Symphony 3 (2003) is subtitled for the Victims of Communism. The program ends with a half-hour String Sextet, written as an emotional response to Schoenberg's Transfigured Night. It is a fine description of a person who cannot get to sleep all night and welcomes the coming of morning, when he finally falls asleep. The performances are well played and the recorded quality is excellent.
