Kremerata Baltica debuted in 1997 as Latvian violinist Gidon Kremer's 50th birthday gift to himself and a means of helping to nurture the artistry of his homeland. The chamber orchestra of 23 gifted young string players, all from Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia, celebrates its 20th anniversary at Bing with a program that highlights works from its most recent and critically acclaimed albums, Chiaroscuro and New Seasons.
