Two of the most prolific musicians of our time, the violinist Gidon Kremer and the pianist Oleg Maisenberg, perform a chamber music passion together with soloists from the Kremerata Baltica orchestra. The Polish-Jewish composer Weinberg responded to international political events—which had a fateful influence on his life fleeing from the Nazis and in exile in the Soviet dictatorship—with a deeply humane music, like that to be performed by a string trio in Krems. The Jewish Volga-German Alfred Schnittke suffered under the repression of the Soviet dictatorship, which defamed his wonderful and wound-full music as “Western decadence”. His piano quintet presented at Imago Dei also bears the “Mozart-Schubert sound” that Schnittke acquired during his youth in Vienna. With Schubert’s sonatina in the “key of the grave” G-minor, Kremer and Maisenberg lead the way into the work of Schnittke.
