An exceptional performance of Gidon Kremer and Kremerata Baltica supplemented with video projections!
In the program you will hear excerpts from “The Art of Instrumentation: A Tribute to Glenn Gould” – works of J. S. Bach inspired by and dedicated to one of the most celebrated classical pianists of the 20th century, the legendary performer of J. S. Bach – Glenn Gould.
With Gidon Kremer there is only one step from J. S. Bach to A. Piazzolla! Later in the program – Suite Punta del Este by Astor Piazzolla, where original bandoneon is replaced with a vibraphone (Andrei Pushkarov). The evening is completed with Second Violin Concerto “The American Four Seasons” by Philip Glass. Inspired by A. Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons”, the work of P. Glass enables the listener to decide which part of the piece represents specific season of the year.
During the concert you will see video projections by Jonas Mekas (*1922), a filmmaker, poet and artist of Lithuanian origin who has often been called “the godfather of American avant-garde cinema,” Rimas Sakalauskas (*1985), youngest generation video artist from Lithuania; Adam Magyar (*1972), Berlin-based Hungarian photographer; and Pingo van der Brinkloev, Danish high end visual effects artist.
