Vadim Repin, 2008Vadim Viktorovich Repin (Вадим Викторович Репин, born Novosibirsk, Western Siberia, 31 August 1971) is a Russian violinist. Yehudi Menuhin once said that "Vadim Repin is simply the best and most perfect violinist that he has ever had the chance to hear" after having heard the Russian violinist perform.

Vadim Repin began to play the violin at the age of 5. He went on to study with Zakhar Bron, the famous and probably best violin teacher, and was revered throughout Russia as a child prodigy.

Professional career
At the age of 17, he became the youngest winner of the Queen Elisabeth Music Competition in Brussels, the world's premier violin competition. He was a member of the jury in the 2009 violin-session of this competition.

Vadim Repin played under such leading conductors as Simon Rattle, Valery Gergiev, Mariss Jansons, and Yehudi Menuhin.

Further, he played with Pierre Boulez, Riccardo Chailly, Charles Dutoit, Michael Tilson Thomas, (with whom he made his United Kingdom debut at The Lichfield Festival in 1985), James Levine, Kurt Masur, Edo de Waart, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Mstislav Rostropovich, and Riccardo Muti.

He performed with the four most prestigious orchestras Berlin Philharmonic, Vienna Philharmonic, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, and London Symphony Orchestra. Vadim Repin gave concerts at Carnegie Hall on several occasions, and he is a frequent guest at The Proms.

Repertoire and recordings
Repin specializes in Russian music and French music, particularly the great Russian violin concertos, as well as 20th century and contemporary music. New music in his repertoire includes work by John Adams and Sofia Gubaidulina.

He has recorded violin concertos by Beethoven, Brahms, Mozart, Sibelius, Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Shostakovich and Nikolai Myaskovsky. Repin has also made two CDs of violin and piano music works with Boris Berezovsky (pianist) and has recorded chamber music with pianists Martha Argerich and Mikhail Pletnev, violist Yuri Bashmet, and cellist Mischa Maisky. In 2010, Repin recorded an album of violin sonatas with pianist Nikolai Lugansky.

The majority of Repin's recordings through 2005 were on the Erato label. However, in 2005 Repin appeared on Deutsche Grammophon (DG) on a disc of chamber music by Sergei Taneyev alongside Mikhail Pletnev, Ilya Gringolts, Nobuko Imai, and Lynn Harrell; and in April 2006 Repin signed an exclusive recording contract with DG.

Vadim Repin played the Stradivarius ‘Ruby’ violin, made in 1708 and previously played by Pablo de Sarasate, up until 2005. He currently plays the Guarneri del Gesù 1736 "von Szerdahely" violin. His preferred bows are by Nicolaus Kittel and Nicolas Maline.

Private life
Vadim Repin married Caroline Diemunsch in 2001. They live in Switzerland and Italy with their son Leonardo, who was born in 2006.
