VREMYA CH, 2002

 

“The intelligence and excellence of a St. Petersburg musician who became Conservatoire teacher and concertmaster of the philharmonic orchestra’s violoncello group the same year he graduated from the Conservatoire, made a truly great impact. Dmitry Eremin conveyed a high performing potential and a truly St. Petersburg music culture…”

 

VECHERNY PETERBURG, ? 8, 2001

 

“He demonstrated surprising maturity in mastering the complex stylistics of an unknown concert and its imaginative essence. The magic sounding of his instrument, the sophisticated phrasing, and the tremulous rhythm were perfectly matching this essence of the music”.

 

THE RUSSIAN MUSIC NEWSPAPER, ?? 4, 1999

 

“A.P. Nikitin and his most talented student D. Eremin played Gendel’s and Vivaldi’s double concerts, then soloed in R. Strauss’s “Don Quixote” (directed by Vladislav Chernushenko).”

 

VIDEO INTERVIEW WITH MR. RODION SCHEDRIN (2002)

 

“First off, I am glad that Dmitry Eremin is again turning to my music, he’s already done that several times, and each time it was brilliant! He performed my cello concert perfectly; not long ago I listened to him playing my “Three Funny Pieces”. I felt great joy! It was so bright, pert, and melodious! As for the concert, he performed it so deeply, so beautifully!..”

 

As for the coming premiere of Parabola Concertante:

 

”… I am just looking forward to listening how D. Eremin will be able to perform this, knowing his “fineness” of playing, masterful technique and, what is most important, his soul, which is so obvious that the audience becomes motionless in tension…”
