Gidon Kremer does not play politics

Monday, 27 February, 2017

The great Latvian violinist Gidon Kremer is 70 today. “Politics,” he once said, “represents only the surface of things. Music speaks with an outstretched hand, not with a clenched fist. It is an offering to the listener, and its profundity can only be established on the basis of service, not on the grounds of self-indulgence or meaningless stardom.”
