“Repin is one of the best we’ve got in the solo violin world. Like his great Russian predecessors, he can convey intensity and passion without forcing his tone . . .”
Los Angeles Times, 5 August 2009
Born in 1971 in Novosibirsk, Vadim Repin began playing the violin at the age of five and after only six months made his first ... Read more in Amazon's Vadim Repin Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent recording 15 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The violin sonatas by Prokofiev are not to everyone's taste so I can just say that if you are familiar with these sonatas this set is worth buying, if not familiar with these sonatas maybe try them at a budget or used price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good CD 11 Sep 2005
By Matthew Brewster - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As a violinist with hundreds of every imaginable piece and artist, this is a good, solid recording of both the Prokofiev sonatas. I'm glad I bought it.

4.0 out of 5 stars This one works. 3 Feb 2002
By James R. Niles - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is not to fault the violin playing, but the piano really sparkles, if such an adjective applies to the f minor. It is fine ensemble playing, and Mr. Prokoviev has the last word. I love the modern Russian composers, and the f minor Sonata has been a favorite since high school. I want this piano player!

2.0 out of 5 stars Sounds like two Julliard students giving their first recital 3 Dec 2003
By The Man in the Hathaway Shirt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
...Meaning they hit all their notes right, but have nothing to say in this bland, spiritless run-through of two of Prokofiev's most colorful works. This sounds like music made by computers, or robots. Moments that beg for color, such as the coda of the first movement of the second sonata or the trio section of the scherzo of the same work, are not present. The moody, ominous opening strains of the first sonata--here it sounds like a finger exercise. This disc sounds like a half-hearted rehearsal. The sharp accents, repetitive rhythms, dynamic contasts, elongated and asymmetrical lines, not to mention that special Russian (or Soviet, I should say) sardonicism--all smoothed over here. Someone added a lot of water to this gin.

And it's not that the pair doesn't have technique. It's more a matter that they don't have experience. I don't think they understand this music, any more than a thousand monkeys at a thousand typewriters can understand the words of Shakespeare even if they happen to type them. This trend of promoting younger and younger artists as "the real deal" in classical music is disturbing. There are a few with apparent wisdom beyond their years (Hillary Hahn comes quickest to mind), but plenty more without.

The reviewer who was so impressed with this pianist should hear a feller named Sviatoslav Richter.
