Violinist Marc Bouchkov Awarded Rheingau Festival Career Grant

24 year old Belgian violinist Marc Bouchkov has today been announced as the recipient of the 2016 Rheingau Music Festival career development grant.

A graduate of the Paris Conservatoire, where he studied with Boris Garlitzky, Marc is a 1st prize winner at the Henri Koch and Montreal International Violin Competitions - and laureate of the 2012 Queen Elisabeth International Violin Competition.


‘He is both a modern and versatile player with an individual artistic personality … when one hears Marc Bouchkov playing one of the great Romantic violin concertos, one recalls the golden age of the violin virtuoso, in the tradition of Jascha Heifetz, Leonid Kogan and David Oistrakh,' a jury spokesperson has said.

The €15,000 (US $17,000) annual scholarship is made possible by the German Hessen Lottery.

Previous recipients include violinists Iskandar Widjaja and Leticia Moreno - and cellist Pablo Ferrández.
