Renowned Latvian violinist Gidon Kremer and his Kremerata Baltica chamber orchestra will perform a special concert in Budapest this week.

They will perform together with Concerto Budapest Symphony Orchestra. Kremer’s fellow violinist, Andras Keller, is the artistic director and chief conductor of Concerto Budapest.

“Once getting together and having so many additional instruments and percussion and wings and becomes real full size symphony orchestra. So it is a unique opportunity for Kremerata Baltica to work in such dimensions, to play a different repertoire as usual,” said Kremer, a legendary violin virtuoso.

Kremer will also celebrate his 70th birthday this week.

After performing in Budapest, the orchestras will go on a tour in Asia.
