About Vadim Repin

Russian violinist Vadim Repin was born in the city of Novosibirsk in 1971 and gave his first recital performance at the age of 11, taking top honors at the Wieniawski International Competition that very same year. Rising to international fame in 1989 upon winning first prize at the Queen Elizabeth Violin Competition in Brussels, Repin mounted a solo career that included performances with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Berlin Sinfonieorchester, Suddeutscher Rundfunk, the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Orchestre de Lyon, and the NHK of Japan, among many others; his early recordings included the Shostakovich Violin Concerto No. 1 and Prokofiev Violin Concerto No. 2 with Kent Nagano and the Hallé Orchestra, as well as the Prokofiev Violin Sonatas No. 1 and No. 2 and Five Melodies with pianist Boris Berezovsky. In 1998, Repin collaborated with Yehudi Menuhin to record Mozart's Violin Concertos No. 2, No. 3, and No. 5. ~ Jason Ankeny
