Gidon Kremer Quotes
"We are both of Jewish-German origin, but lived for years in Moscow,"
"Both of us -- as many others did -- struggled against the political impositions of the Soviet system. I was happy to be able to feel in Alfred an artist on the same wavelength, and tried my best to 'defend' his music."
"I remember the great conductors (like my favorite -- Lenny Bernstein) and wonderful performances of new pieces (like Sofia Gubaidulina's Offertorium with Zubin Mehta). I am glad to meet this excellent orchestra and its loyal audience once again."
