"The most perfect violinist I have ever heard."
So said Yehudi Menuhin about world-renowned Russian violinist Vadim Repin who is making a historic visit to the Napa Valley to perform with Maestro Michael Guttman and Symphony Napa Valley at Lincoln Theater. In partnership with the Trans-Siberian Festival of the Arts, of which Repin is the Artistic Director, this concert will bring the fiery passion, impeccable technique and brilliant poetry that have become his trademark to a performance of masterpieces by Tchaikovsky.
Among living violinists, Repin stands supreme. More than a tour de force, Repin’s playing is a celebration of violin music itself. What makes the Russian stand out is his classical reserve as a player. He has a seraphic purity and strength of sound, which honors the depth of the music he loves, whether it’s Brahms, Sibelius or Shostakovich. His technique is wonderfully relaxed and makes everything look easy.
