InterviewEivind Gullberg Jensen and Vadim Repin in conversation with Sarah Willis
Vadim Repin and Eivind Gullberg Jensen
With conductor Eivind Gullberg, Vadim Repin – described by Yehudi Menuhin as “the best, the most perfect violinist I have ever heard” – plays Sofia Gubaidulina’s Offertorium: a contemplative work which both conceptually and thematically looks back to Bach’s The Musical Offering. Sibelius’s First Symphony is, on the other hand, a work of unrestrained emotion, with Scandinavian colours merging with Tchaikovsky-inspired expressiveness.
