Vadim Repin (Violin soloist)

A critic wrote of Vadim Repin “He can master the most dangerous challenges with an almost provocative serenity.” Fiery passion with impeccable technique, poetry and sensitivity are Repin’s trademarks, and his name has rapidly become synonymous with the violin.

Born in Siberia in 1971, he started to play violin at the age of five and six months later had his first stage performance. At only eleven he won the gold medal in all age categories in the Wienawski Competition and gave his recital debuts in Moscow and St Petersburg. In 1985 at fourteen he made his debuts in Tokyo, Munich, Berlin, Helsinki;a year later in Carnegie Hall. Two years later Vadim Repin was the youngest ever winner of the most prestigious and demanding violin competition in the world, the Reine Elisabeth Concours. Since then he has appeared with the world’s greatest orchestras including the Berlin Philharmonic, the Boston Symphony, the Chicago Symphony, Cleveland Orchestra, La Scala Milan, the Los Angeles and New York Philharmonic Orchestras, the Orchestre de Paris, the Royal Concertgebouw, San Francisco Symphony, the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and the St. Petersburg Philharmonic. He has performed under the baton of leading conductors such as Boulez, Bychkov, Chailly, Conlon, Dohnanyi, Dutoit, Eschenbach, Gergiev, Jansons, Neeme and Paavo Jarvi, Krivine, Levine, Luisi, Marriner, Masur, Mehta, Muti, Nagano, Rattle, Rostropovich, Rozhdestvensky, Temirkanov and Zinman.

An advocate of new music, Vadim Repin has received international accolades for his performances of John Adams’ Violin Concerto and Gubaidulina’s Offertorium, and last season premiered a new concerto by Daniel Brewbaker with the Baltimore Symphony.

Vadim Repin has been a frequent guest at festivals such as the Hollywood Bowl, Tanglewood, Ravinia, Rheingau, Verbier and the BBC Proms. His “Carte Blanche” invitation to the Louvre in Paris resulted in a prize-winning live recording of music performed with colleagues including the gypsy violinist Roby Lakatos.Chamber music partners have included Martha Argerich, Yuri Bashmet, Evgeny Kissin, Nikolai Lugansky, Mischa Maisky and Mikhail Pletnev. In the 2005-06 season, Mr. Repin collaborates with Nikolai Lugansky for recitals in Brazil and a U.S. tour culminating in concerts in Boston and at Avery Fisher Hall in New York. Mr. Repin’s other North American engagements include a gala performance with Placido Domingo for Washington National Opera’s 50th Anniversary, a Carnegie Hall appearance with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and concerto dates with the Montreal Symphony and the National Arts Centre Orchestra.

Recent performance highlights have included galas with Mstislav Rostropovich to celebrate the centenary of the London Symphony Orchestra, a unique recital in Genoa on Paganini’s own violin, the legendary “Cannone”, a concert with the Bavarian Radio Symphony and Mariss Jansons for an audience of eight thousand on Munich’s Odeonsplatz, a concert to mark the opening of the Olympic Games in Athens, and benefit galas for the children’s charity Amade Mondiale in the presence of its president, Princess Caroline of Monaco, and for Amnesty International with Kurt Masur and the Orchestre National de France.The centenary of Dvorak’s death was marked by numerous performances of the composer’s violin concerto, culminating in concerts with the Berlin Philharmonic and Jansons.

His prize-winning recordings on the Erato/Warner Classics label include the Shostakovich Violin Concerto No. 1 and Prokofiev Violin Concerto No. 2 with Kent Nagano and the Halle Orchestra; the Tchaikovsky and Sibelius concerti with the London Symphony Orchestra under Emmanuel Krivine.With pianist Boris Berezovsky he has recorded Prokofiev Violin Sonatas 1 & 2 and Five Melodies which won the Diapason d’Or, the Ravel Sonata and Medtner’s Sonata Epica, and works by Stravinsky, Richard Strauss and Bartok. His Mozart Violin Concerti with the Vienna Chamber Orchestra conducted by Yehudi Menuhin won him the 1999 Echo Klassik Instrumentalist of the Year award, and “Tutta Bravura”, a collection of virtuoso pieces, and Lalo’s Symphonie Espagnole, have received international acclaim. On the Philips label, the violin concerti of Tchaikovsky and Myaskovsky with the Kirov Orchestra and Valery Gergiev mark Repin’s long association with the conductor; a disc of Taneyev’s chamber music has recently been released on the Deutsche Grammophon label.

Repin performs on the Stradivarius “Ruby” 1708 by kind permission of the Stradivarius Society of Chicago and also the 1736 Guarneri del Gesu “von Szerdahely”.
