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.
