The Kremerata Baltica, which was founded on the initiative of Gidon Kremer, first went on a tour with Martha Argerich in 2014. On the next occasion, in early 2016, they also came to Budapest. János Malina entitled his review “A gift of a day.” Martha Argerich, he wrote, proved, for the umpteenth time, to be “one of the greatest performing artists of our time.” Her production was “magic that seemed definitive.”

Argerich and the Kremerata Baltica now bring a varied and lavish programme to the Budapest Spring Festival. The concert will start with a piece for string orchestra and percussion by the Estonian Lepo Sumera, one of the most original composers of modern music, who passed away unexpectedly early, while the last work on the programme will be an extremely virtuosic piano concerto by Franz Liszt. One of Chopin’s emblematic piano pieces can now be heard in an arrangement by the Belgium-based Russian composer, Victor Kissine.
