The concert tour was titled "An Evening with Seasons", in which a very selective program, the Season pieces by Vivaldi, Piazzolla and Glass were performed.
The concert began with an arrangement for the vibraphone and the string orchestra of Vivaldi's Summer concerto from the Four Seasons, arranged and played on the vibraphone by Andrei Pushkarev, an Ukrainian renowned vibraphonist. Then Kremer captivated the audience by his extravagant playing on his Stradivari violin for Piazzoll's Four Seasons of Buenos Aires. The concert ended with Glass' American Four Seasons played by Kremer on the solo violin with Kremerata Baltica Chamber Orchestra accompanied by a spectacle video projection by Rimas Sakalauskas which interpreted the music and attracted the audience.
