Violin virtuoso Vladimir is undertaking an Irish tour this December and RTÉ Ten would like to send you and a friend along to see him in action. Plus you can also win a copy of his new album.
Irish based since 2004, the young Slovak has built a loyal audience in his adopted homeland based on extensive touring, and appearances on The Late Late Show, Nationwide, Today FM, Lyric FM and RTÉ Radio 1.
His new album, Vladimir's Classical Christmas, features guest appearances from Irish opera stars Claudia Boyle (soprano) and John Molloy (bass baritone), plus Wexford singer Wallis Bird and Vladimir's six-year-old daughter Dominika.
Tracks on the new album include Prokofiev’s Troika, Stop The Cavalry (featuring John Molloy), All I Want For Christmas Is You, The Wexford Carol (featuring Wallis Bird), and The Blue Danube.
To be in with a chance to win tickets to one of Vladimir's concerts and a copy of his new album, send your answer to the following question, along with your address and contact phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org
