Vadim Repin, violin

State Academic Symphony Orchestra of Russia “Evgeny Svetlanov"
Artistic Director and Conductor – Vladimir Jurowski
Vadim Repin, Vladimir Jurowski, the State Academic Symphony Orchestra named after Evgeny Svetlanov – names like that performing in the same time and place is the real gift for Moscow public.

Today Vadim Repin is referred to as “Russian Paganini” and “one of the world’s best violin players”, but many people still remember him as one of the three famous prodigy children – others two are Evgeny Kissin and Maxim Vengerov – have startled the world. Repin was only 5 years old when he first took the violin, and in the tender age of 11 he has already won Gold Medal of Weniavsky’s competition in Poland. In 14 years old he was touring Tokyo, Munchen, Berlin, and Helsinki; New York Carnegi Hall public saw Repin as the 15 years old teenager, and in his seventeens he is the youngest winner of the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels.

Now his mature performance remains virtuosic and heavenly facility, while in the same time it’s deep, wise, and very close to an author’s vision.

Nowadays, since the music director and conductor of the State Academic Symphony Orchestra Vladimir Jurowski performs in Moscow less and less, the more it’s worth to see him play in the city.

Jurowski’s renditions, restrained yet powerful, are full of energy, while music for his programs is carefully selected. Preparing a program, Vladimir Jurowski thoroughly studies archives and relevant books for better understanding of the context in which the music was written. It is the responsibility before author that becomes the basis for reading a sheet music.
