His repertoire ranges from Bach to the present, whereby a number of contemporary composers have achieved international recognition through his commitment. Since 1997 Kremer has devoted a large part of his activities to the chamber orchestra Kremerata Baltica, which he founded. The ensemble consists of young musicians from the three Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. The average age is 25. The debut of the chamber orchestra in February 1997 corresponded with the 50th birthday of its founder Gidon Kremer.

They leave together, Eisenstein now intending to report to the prison. There the gaoler Frosch has drunken objections to the singing of Alfred. Adele and her sister, who have dramatic ambitions, seek Frank's help in furthering their stage careers, while Eisenstein, who now arrives, cannot persuade Frank at first of his identity and when he learns that the supposed Eisenstein is already in prison is suspicious of Rosalinde.
