Gidon Kremer - Edition Lockenhaus

$49.98

Ships on: July 29, 2024

This limited edition specially-priced 5-CD box set features out-of-print recordings together with one never-before-released jewel featuring Sir Simon Rattle and Roman Kofman conducting Kremerata Baltica in revelatory performances of Richard Strauss's Metamorphosen and Olivier Messiaen's Trois petites Liturgies de la Présence Divine.

The box set includes recordings from 1981, 1982, 1984, 1985, and 1986 - previously issued as 2 double-CD sets, Edition Lockenhaus Volumes 1/2 and 4/5 . These titles have been long out of print and are eagerly sought-after by Kremer aficionados. Lockenhaus has been, above all, a young musicians' festival and some of the very greatest have appeared there, alongside Gidon Kremer, early in their careers - including players strongly associated with ECM: Kim Kashkashian, Thomas Zehetmair, Thomas Demenga, Robert Levin, Heinz Holliger, and more.

The committed interpretations throughout convey the spirit of Lockenhaus.
