Gidon Kremer

Biography

Born in Riga on February 27th, 1947, Gidon Kremer is considered as one of the greatest violinists and musicians of his generation. Both professional violinists, his father and grandfather introduced him to the instrument. Gidon Kremer was then taught by David Oistrakh who passed on to his disciple the art of the Russian violin along with considerable open-mindedness endowed with a demanding musical knowledge. This exceptional tutoring put him in a strong position and enabled the young violinist to confront the most demanding competitions.
