We are extremely honored and humbled to receive a Gramophone award in Orchestral category for our recording of Mieczysław Weinberg’s symphonies No. 2 and 21. This recording (and the UK premiere of Weinberg’s Symphony No. 21) was a joined adventure of Kremerata Baltica, Gidon Kremer, Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. Discovering and working on the symphony No. 21 called “Kaddish”, joining forces with a wonderful City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra was a true joy and inspiration. We are very happy that Weinberg’s music today is getting more well known by the audiences all around the world and we are very glad to have played our part in popularization of his music. We are looking forward for many more performances where the music Mieczysław Weinberg will be the center of our attention!
