Gidon Kremer returns to UMS with his chamber ensemble, Kremerata Baltica, to perform in Ann Arbor's Hill Auditorium, Thursday, February 6, 2014 at 7:30pm. Born in Latvia, violinist Gidon Kremer has had an unconventional career, beginning studies with violin master David Oistrakh at the age of 18 and going on to win first prize in both the Paganini and Tchaikovsky International Competitions. With an unusually extensive repertoire, he regularly champions the work of living composers and has performed many important new compositions. He returns to UMS with his chamber ensemble Kremerata Baltica to perform a program that commemorates, in part, the centennial of Benjamin Britten’s birth.
