DMITRI SHOSTAKOVICH: Three Pieces for Two Violins and Piano

Kremer, Pētersone, and Avdeeva

This weekend marks the Tippet Rise debuts of violinist Gidon Kremer, one of the most original and compelling artists of his generation, and violinist Madara Pētersone, a leading member of the renowned chamber orchestra Kremerata Baltica, which Kremer founded in 1997 to foster outstanding young musicians from the Baltic States. Born in Latvia, Kremer has championed the work of contemporary Russian and Eastern European composers throughout his five-decade-long career, including Mieczysław Weinberg, the Polish-born composer and pianist whose works will be featured. This program also features pianist Yulianna Avdeeva, returning to Tippet Rise following a mesmerizing recital in 2022. In addition to performing alongside Kremer, Avdeeva, who first gained worldwide recognition as First Prize Winner at the 2010 Chopin Competition, will perform Chopin’s Piano Sonata No. 3 in B Minor, Op. 58.

Avdeeva and Kremer are managed by SHELDON ARTISTS LLC / R. Douglas Sheldon. Avdeeva’s recordings are available on ECM, Deutsche Grammophon, Mirare, and Pentatone. Kremer’s recordings are available on Deutsche Grammophon, ECM, Nonesuch, and Accentus.
