Repin, Vadim

Repin, Vadim , Russian violinist; b. Novosibirsk, Aug. 31, 1971. He was a pupil of Zakhar Bron at the Novosibirsk Cons. When he was 11, he took 1st prize in the junior division of the Wieniawski competition in Poland. At age 13, he appeared with Yevgeny Kissen in the inaugural recital of the 1984 Tchaikovsky competition in Moscow, and subsequently made appearances in his homeland. In 1987 he made his British debut as soloist with the BBC Phil, at the Lichfield Festival. After capturing 1st prize in both the Tibor Varga (1988) and Queen Elisabeth of Belgium (1989) competitions, he toured extensively. During the 1990–91 season, he appeared as soloist with the Minn. Orch., toured Germany with the London Phil., and gave recitals in Paris, London, Frankfurt am Main, and Salzburg. In 1991 he toured the U.S. and Germany with the State Sym. Orch. of Russia, and also made his North American recital debut at the Ravinia Festival in Chicago. In subsequent seasons, his tours took him all over the world. Repin’s playing is a tribute to the time-honored Russian tradition of violin virtuosity, most notable for its seemingly effortless technical display and élan.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
