PAS DE DEUX FOR TOES AND FINGERS

Vadim Repin and Svetlana Zakharova

The man whom Yehudi Menuhin called the “best and most perfect violinist” and the woman who became prima ballerina of the Bolshoi and a shining Étoile of Teatro alla Scala bring music and movement together in a supreme expression of beauty. United on stage as they are in life, Vadim Repin and Svetlana Zakharova combine the grace of ballet and the inspiration of the violin with supreme artistry in soulsoaring performances. His fingers and her toes create an ethereal pas de deux to rival the mythical performances of Apollo and his muses. They have chosen beautiful music ranging from classic to contemporary to be played by Riccardo Muti’s excellent youth Chamber Orchestra “Luigi Cherubini” led by Vadim Repin with his 1733 Stradivari violin.
