Vadim Repin
Russian Federation
Born in 1971 in Novosibirsk, Vadim Repin began playing the violin at the age of five and after only six months made his first public appearance. He studied in his hometown with Zakhar Bron. At the age of seven he gave his first performance with orchestra, at eleven, his St. Petersburg recital debut. His international breakthrough came in 1989, when Repin became the youngest-ever winner of the Queen Elisabeth Competition. Since then Vadim Repin has appeared with the world’s greatest orchestras and conductors. He is also 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. His chamber-music partners have included Martha Argerich, Yuri Bashmet, Evgeny Kissin, Nikolai Lugansky, Mischa Maisky, and Mikhail Pletnev. Repin has won numerous prizes, including an Echo Award as ‘Instrumentalist of the Year 1999’, the ‘Diapason d’or’, the Prix Caecilia, and the Edison Award. In 2010 he was awarded the Victoire d’Honneur, France’s most prestigious musical award for a lifetime’s dedication to music, and a few months later he became Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et Lettres.
