Verona and the Ristori Theater are ready to welcome the famous violinist Vadim Repin for the first time in Verona on Wednesday 17 May, at 8.30 pm, who stands out in the vast musical panorama for his virtuosity raised to the nth degree and his charismatic musical personality. Accompanied by the symphonic complex of his hometown, the Novosibirsk Philharmonic Orchestra, which will present itself with a staff of 75 musicians conducted by Gintaras Rinkevičius, Vadim Repin will be the protagonist of the expected concert included in the programming dedicated to symphonic music.

Before the show, at 7.15 pm, in the foyer of the Amarone tasting theater of the Allegrini winery. The love for their land has prompted the Allegrini family to enhance the potential of Valpolicella and its winemaking tradition, becoming a leader in its sector. From the union of wine and music great emotions can arise, for this reason the Teatro Ristori wanted to combine the art of music with the art of wine; and so the Allegrini Winery will be at the Ristori Theater, as part of the appointments with the Amarone d'Arte Families.

Vadim Repin will propose the second concert of Prokofiev, a work intimately connected, for its Iberian suggestions, to the Spanish Capriccio of Rimsky - Korsakov placed at the opening of the program. In the second part, Beethoven's Fifth Symphony in C minor, perhaps the most performed and the most universally known of the nine symphonies. It is considered the paradigm of Beethovenian symphonism in the sense that no other work presents the characteristics, almost the idiosyncrasies of Beethoven's language, with as much clarity and conciseness. "Here is the destiny that knocks at the door": a tradition worthy of faith has meant that Beethoven expressed himself thus referring to the attack of the Symphony made up of four lapidary and sculptural notes. And it is a destiny against which Beethoven struggles, which Beethoven wins and drives back into the darkness of superstition in the name of the clarity of human reason.
