Gidon Kremer
Daniil Trifonov

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Violin legend Gidon Kremer and the exciting young pianist Daniil Trifonov perform music that spans 18th-century Vienna to the 20th-century Soviet Union. Mozart’s E-flat Sonata features an exciting Rondo finale with variations. Schubert’s deceptively simple Fantasy in C Major also has variations—a virtuoso set on his song “Sei mir gegrüsst” (“I greet you”). The music of Polish-born Soviet composer Weinberg shares common ground with that of his friend and mentor Shostakovich, yet maintains its own original voice—particularly in its use of Jewish folk-like themes. Gidon Kremer, a champion of Weinberg’s music, brings tremendous flair and feeling to two of the composer’s violin works.
