Notes & Reviews:

Always an explorer among today's virtuoso violinists, Gidon Kremer presents a personal selection of some of his greatest DG recordings, along with 25 minutes of previously unreleased material. "Kremer is most famous for championing new music and for new interpretations of old works. His style is technically brilliant, but never showy." -Gramophone
