Product Description & Reviews

For their second project in an exclusive relationship with Nonesuch, the violinist and his Baltic-based ensemble offer a meditative collection of 20th century works imbued with the pure intensity of approach that is the hallmark of their style. The album is bookended by two Arvo Part compositions, the iconic Tabula rasa - through whose 1984 chamber recording the composer's name took root in the consciousness of the artistic community - here presented in full orchestration. Philip Glass' company made its recording debut on the Kronos Quartet's first album, and was written as incidental music for a production of the Samuel Beckett play of the same name. It appears here in string orchestra form. Violinist Gidon Kremer and his ensemble, Kremerata Baltica, have tackled repertoire that ranges from Baroque to contemporary, but they seem to shine on the newer stuff. The group has an obvious ear for the music of the Baltic region, and Kremer's icy precision and passionate playing are tailor-made for the modern masters. On Silencio, Kremer delivers another stunning recording, this one featuring meditative music by a trio of composing mavericks: Arvo Pärt, Philip Glass, and Vladimir Martynov. Martynov may be the least-known of the three, but his work marks the disc's highlight composition, "Come In!" The moving piece for violin and orchestra--which features plenty of Romantic, lyrical playing (and the occasional sound of a door knocking)--is mystical but also tender and sweet. A string orchestra arrangement of Glass's String Quartet No. 2 ("Company") is almost as intense as the original played by Kronos. A short Pärt world premiere rounds out this disc: "Darf Ich" is a glorious piece for violin and orchestra reminiscent of Pärt's sublime "Summa". This is a gorgeous disc you'll get lost in; another gem from Kremer. --Jason Verlinde
