Vadim Repin Birthday

Today is Belgian-Russian violin virtuoso Vadim Repin’s 49th birthday!

A protégé of Zakhar Bron, he is a former 1st prize winner at the Wienaiwski and Queen Elisabeth International Violin Competitions.

Vadim was once described by the late Yehudi Menuhin as “simply the best and most perfect violinist that I have ever had the chance to hear”.
