Music school

Never in his family no one musician was not, and suddenly appeared the Prodigy – Vadim Repin, violinist. Biography as a musician began at age five when 31 Aug baby brought to record in a music school. He wanted drums or accordion. But it turned out later, these offices were occupied. Vadim gave up the violin and said that if you do not like, you will have to come early, but next year.

The Violin loved by the boy to such an extent that the parents had revised their plans for the rest of my life. Vadim's father was a painter and decorator, and mother – nurse. Later dad did for a living, and my mother gave herself entirely to the talent of the son and his support. She had absolutely no musical education and studied simultaneously with Vadim listening to it and delving into the essence. This is a complete maternal sacrifice Vadim is extremely appreciated, especially because my mom noticed that the little boy is clean, clearly and quickly picks up heard the song on any instrument.

After the first contest

When eleven-year-old Vadim received almost all the prizes of the competition Wieniawski (main – first, in the different groups, several distinctions from the jury and from the public), the question arose about what to do next, how to develop success? The wise teacher – today the most famous and almost unknown then, Zakhar Bron, Vadim prepared to the meeting with Tikhon Khrennikov. The boy for two weeks, learned the most difficult violin Concerto, to please this wonderful composer.

The Star disease was nowhere to begin and no time – eleven-year-old violinist studied more than six hours a day. And my mother harshly suppressed any attempt to become proud. And Tikhon Khrennikov was very fond of Vadim Repin, as well as your student Maxim Vengerov. Were often the author's evening of the composer, where the boys toured together with Eugene by Kisinin – a child Prodigy pianist. Happy and carefree were the days!

Vadim Repin


Vadim was lucky with a concert violin made by an extremely talented master of the Novosibirsk Mikhail Defleron, but when Tikhon Khrennikov insisted, the Ministry of culture on the fact that this boy deserves the best tool in the world, it was issued from the state collection Stradivarius. Horizons of young talent opened just immense.

Children, trehchetvertki (the only one in the world, by the way), it sounded like a full-fledged adult. Three years later, again thanks to the efforts of Tikhon Nikolayevich, Vadim Repin has already played at full Stradivari-Stradivari Wieniawski. Almost all famous violins have names, because each has its own biography. This tool was used Wieniawski himself when he worked at the Mariinsky theatre.

But then, growing up, Vadim chose Guarneri, because the tools of the school of Stradivari's practically nothing earthly, they are perfect, they sing in the clouds of the divine voices. That is, the violin somehow set by the rules of the game that he is not able to break. Guarneri made their tools more philosophical: they are too "transcendental" a beautiful sound, but also the earth, the "ugly" sound can't resist when it's needed. And often it is simply necessary, especially if you play contemporary music that Vadim in the repertoire of many.

Vadim Repin is a violinist

Three generations

Not for the first time in 2015 was held in Novosibirsk on TRANS-Siberian art-festival, where he delivered three generations of violinists of a school, including myself, Zakhar Bron and his wonderful disciple Vadim Repin.

The program was the most famous virtuoso of the violin pieces-Sarasate, Ravel, Paganini... the conductor of the chamber orchestra stood Nahimovich Zakhar Bron. Played the young, is not eighteen students of this master teacher. Their music has amazed listeners.

The Performance of Vadim Repin and Zakhar Bron of Prokofiev's sonatas “C” for two violins was the crown of this magnificent nearly three-hour concert. The audience stood up and didn't let their favorites, they wrote the name of the native of Novosibirsk on all maps of the world culture the most in large letters.
