Sweet

Vadim Repin is so good it’s scary. I’m serious. So why isn’t his name a household word like Joshua Bell, Sarah Chang, Midori, Itzak Pearlman, et. al.?

Salvatori Accardo is my favorite (I think), and yet he, too, is not well known in the U.S. (I’ll bet if he played professional sports…never mind.)

You WILL enjoy this CD – assuming you like classical, like Beethoven, and like a violin that sounds as though it’s being played by heavenly spirits.
