About Kremerata Baltica

  • "Kremer and his new string orchestra, made up of extraordinary young players from the Baltic States, are special. They animate everything their bows touch." —Los Angeles Times

    Kremerata Baltica, a chamber orchestra, was created in 1997 by violinist Gidon Kremer, who serves as the orchestra's artistic director and solo violinist. The high artistic quality of the ensemble is the result of the talent of the individual musicians and Kremer's innovative approach to repertoire. Kremerata Baltica is composed exclusively of talented young musicians (average age 27) from the Baltic States and is supported by the Ministries of Culture of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, making the group the de facto cultural ambassadors of the region. Kremerata Baltica won a Grammy Award in 2002, was nominated for another in 2003, and performs in all the great halls of the world.
