Very honored and proud that our DVD with Paul Smaczny’s documentary “Gidon Kremer- Finding Your Own Voice” has won the International Classical Music Awards (ICMA) 2020 as “Best Video Documentary”!
The jury states: “Paul Smaczny’s film about the Latvian violinist Gidon Kremer, certainly one of the most unconventional and exciting musicians of our time, accompanies the violinist on tour and looks back on important moments of his life. Smaczny explores the musician’s many artistic, intellectual and emotional facets with great empathy and deep understanding for an artist with an exceptional sense of mission and moral responsibility. In addition to the incredibly enriching documentary film, the DVD also includes a recording of a concert at Moscow’s Gogol Centre, with Gidon Kremer playing Weinberg’s 24 Preludes, originally for cello, arranged by Kremer for violin.”
Congratulations and a big thank you to everyone involved in the making of this exceptional film!
