The Concert. With Russian pianist Svetlana Smolina at the Teatro Lirico di Cagliari
Vadim Repin, what a premium class!

One confirmation and one surprise. This is how one could summarize the chamber music evening that took place two days ago at the Teatro Lirico in Cagliari as the second event of the 2017 concert season.

The star of the event, Siberian Vadim Repin, showed the validity of class and experience. The exviolin prodigy, pupil of Zakhar Bron and winner at the age of 16 of the prestigious Reine Elisabeth-Competition in Brussels, has gone into a gradual heightening like a long-distance runner intensifying his pace when the see the finishing line. If the execution of the Sonata No. 3 in G Minor by Debussy and the Sonata No. 2 in D by Prokofiev was carried out as in the textbook, the change of gear was noticeable in the second half of the concert with the Sonata in A by Franck.

Vadim won the audience’s applause with his communicative immediacy and his daredevil virtuosity,which became exalted in Tzigane, concert rhapsody by Ravel, signature of an authentic premium class.

The surprise of the evening was the Russian pianist Svetlana Smolina, statuesque in her long, fieryred dress. Thanks to an excellent control of dynamics and timbre, Smolina found the right feeling with Vadim (the two of them have been playing together since 2014), who from her singing appeared to gain mellifluousness and freshness along the way. The pianist from Novgorod did not suffer from the carismatic personality of her illustrious colleague and demonstrated a consolidated artistic maturity.
At the end, the two artists repayed the audience’s enthusiasm (the only shame being a few absences
too many) with two elegant and applauded encores on tunes from „Eugene Onegin“ by Tchaikowsky.
