Brahms knew how to make an entrance. After a stormy orchestral introduction, the violin enters with plenty of fire and electricity. But like all storms, this one eventually calms down. Violinist Vadim Repin says there's a real art to setting up that "eventuality."
Siberian-born violinist Vadim Repin is one of many violinists who places the Brahms Violin Concerto on "sacred ground." More information on his recording of the Brahms Concerto with Riccardo Chailly and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra is available at www.vadimrepin.com.
Vadim Repin joins Lang Lang and Misha Maisky for Piano Trios by Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovsky on his most recent recording.
