Kremer Changes Seasons

Gidon Kremer has become the Glenn Gould of the violin — technically

brilliant, eccentric and fascinating in his choice of music and quirky

interpretations. In this case, he's wedded Antonio Vivaldi's The

Four Seasons with the tango-flavored Four Seasons of Buenos

Aires by Astor Piazzola. The performance by Kremer and his small,

hand-picked orchestra stylishly illuminates the similarities and contrasts

between the rustic Vivaldi and the urban Piazzola.
