Gidon Kremer at Wigmore

Filed under: Music,Review — tmyers2002 @ 4:24 pm

gidon kremerViolinist Gidon Kremer teamed up with pianist Oleg Maisenberg for a recital at Wigmore Hall. Hilary Finch reviewed the program of Schubert, Bartok, and Kurtag for the London Times, and wrote that in the Schubert, Kremer makes us “wonder at the beauty of a simple chromatic scale”, while in the Bartok Kremer proved that “red blood still coursed freely” in his veins. Reviewing the recital for the Guardian, Andrew Clements wrote that all the works were “treated with affection and consummate musicality” with “never anything self-regarding or attention-seeking about his playing.”

Kremer might love the reviews, but would he love this blog posting? It comes from, a site dedicated to dream, insomnia and nightmare products. Are they touting Kremer’s Insomnia CD as a cure for sleeplessness?
