A creative evening dedicated to the 70th anniversary of an outstanding Latvian violinist Gidon Kremer will be held in Baku. The world-famous musician will surprise guests with an original concert program at the Azerbaijan State Philharmonic Hall on December 14. After the solo performance of the famous Chakona JS Bach, the violinist will perform 24 preludes of one of the talented, but unfortunately, little known composers of the twentieth century Mechislav Weinberg.

This year marks the 70th birthday year of maestro and 20th anniversary of Kremerata Baltica orchestra, which was founded by him. The artists celebrated their double anniversary by successful tours to the cities of Canada, US, Europe, Asia. Concert in Baku is also a part of this world landmark tour.   By Laman Ismayilova
