Born in 1971 in Novosibirsk, Vadim Repin began playing the violin at the age of five and made his first public appearance just six months later. He gave his first concert with an orchestra at the age of seven and made his St Petersburg debut at eleven. In 1989, he became known internationally as the youngest winner of the Queen Elisabeth Competition. The highlights of his career include tours with the London Symphony Orchestra and Valery Gergiev, the NHK Orchestra and Charles Dutoit, and the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Vladimir Jurowski, as well as the violin concerto dedicated to him by Sir James MacMillan, which he played all over the world before recording it on the Onyx Classics label. Vadim Repin has also recorded for other labels, including Warner Classics and Deutsche Grammophon, and won an ECHO Klassic award for his trio with Mischa Maisky and Lang Lang and a BBC Music Award for his collaboration with Nikolai Lugansky. In 2010, he was awarded a Victoire d’Honneur in France at the Victoires de la Musique Classique and was made a Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et Lettres. Vadim Repin is an Honorary Professor at the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing and at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music. The Trans-Siberian Arts Festival, of which he has been artistic director since 2014, takes place every year in his native region.
