. . . a remarkably agile and inspired interpreter of modernist composers . . . [this 22-CD set] shows Kremer's versatility as well as his virtuosity . . . extraordinarily expressive readings . . .

We live in a golden age of classical fiddlers today, but Gidon Kremer is the gold standard. The 22 CDs here not only include the usual 19th century suspects but are as lively an investigation of contemporary music as you're likely to find.

. . . Kremer has been a powerful force in modern music . . . The chance to rediscover Kremer and Harnoncourt exploring Mozart, Shostakovich and Schumann with Ozawa, and Mendelssohn with Argerich should be seized with gratitude.

. . . a master with a fine technique . . . This 22-CD set houses acknowledged performances with the world's great orchestras and conductors . . .

. . . le répertoire de Gidon Kremer a enrichi notre perspective, non seulement sur la musique de notre temps, mais aussi sur les oeuvres classiques . . . Nul autre violoniste n'a exploré un répertoire d'une telle ampleur, n'a démontré une curiosité aussi insatiable, n'a exprimé au disque comme au concert une telle soif d'aventure loin des sentiers battus . . . Il nous éblouit dans la Fantaisia appassionata de Vieuxtemps, dont la transcendante virtuosité a refroidi la plupart de ses collègues . . . [il aime éclairer le visage de Paganini,] comme lorsqu'il explore avec Muti une orchestration de la rare Sonata "Varsavia" ou qu'il renoue avec l'esprit fantasque du maitre génois en insérant dans son Concerto no. 4 une cadence provocatrice . . . Exaltante avec Bernstein pour partenaire dans sa Sérénade et dans les deux concertos de Brahms, l'ivresse de son dialogue avec Argerich dans le Double Concerto de Mendelssohn reste sans égale à ce jour . . . [le monde] doit beaucoup à ce champion des musiques oubliées ou bannies. Après tout cela, il vous restera encore à vous émerveiller d'un céleste concerto de Berg, à goûter celui de Rorem, dont il reste le seul interprète au disque.
