Gidon Kremer is one of the most exciting artists of our time. On the occasion of his 70th birthday, a portrait of the great violinist and intellectual emerges. It will focus on Kremer’s current work – e. g. with the Kremerata Baltica – and will also take a look back at the stations of an unprecedented artistic career. Last week, we were in Tokyo with Kremer – here are a few impressions!

We are very excited that our DVD with Alban Berg’s “Wozzeck”, recorded at the Opernhaus Zürich, staged by Andreas Homoki and with the exceptional Christian Gerhaher in the leading role, has won another prestigious award: The Gramophone Classical Music Award 2017!
‘This is a finely honed production that follows its premise to an absurdist conclusion with slick theatricality and dispassionate zeal…’

This documentary, directed by Maria Stodtmeier, filmed in North and South Korea, explores whether music can overcome the boundaries of a divided country. There is one figure of the two Koreas, whose outstanding biography in itself forms a bridge between both worlds: The Korean composer Isang Yun, one of the very few people acknowledged on both sides. The film traces the course of a life that has been interpreted in different ways. For more information about the film click here.
