Professor

Marc Bouchkov

Marc Bouchkov’s musicality is driven by expression. His violin playing is rooted not only in a comprehensive understanding of the scores, their historical contexts and the authenticity of their interpretation, but also in his firm belief that in performing, he is communicating musical content directly to his audience. He is inspired and motivated by the closeness of the violin’s sound to the human voice, and the feelings and emotions he expresses involve his audience in a musical experience.

Marc Bouchkov was born into a family of musicians in 1991. He received his first violin lessons at the age of five from his grandfather, Mattis Vaitsner. He went on to be taught by Claire Bernard and Boris Garlitsky, who has been a mentor to him ever since. From October 2014 to July 2017, he studied as a “Young Soloist” with Mihaela Martin, as part of a postgraduate programme at Kronberg Academy.

Marc Bouchkov’s musical progress has been marked by numerous international awards. He won first prizes at the “International Violin Competition Henri Koch”, and at the “Young Concert Artists International Auditions” in Leipzig, and was a prize-winner at the “Concours Musical International Reine Elisabeth”. In 2013, he was awarded the 1stprize at the “Concours musical international de Montréal”, and became a laureate of Georges Gara’s Juventus foundation. In 2016, he won the “LOTTO sponsorship prize” at the Rheingau Music Festival. In 2018, he was awarded the “Prix Ivry Gitlis 2018” at the “Le Printemps du Violon” international music festival in Paris.

Marc Bouchkov’s career as a concert musician has advanced at an impressive pace from its early days, and has attracted much attention from music critics. “without doubt: an exceptional talent!”, the “Neue Zürcher Zeitung” wrote after his 2016 performance with the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich under the baton of Lionel Bringuier, as part of the Orpheum Foundation’s concerts. Highlights of his 2016/2017 season included performances with the hr-Sinfonieorchester conducted by Christoph Eschenbach, the Orchestre National de Belgique and the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale RAI in Turin under the baton of Andrey Boreyko.

Marc Bouchkov has already performed with the NDR Symphony Orchestra, the Belgian National Orchestra, the Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Liège, the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra, the Sinfonieorchester Liechtenstein and the Staatsorchester Rheinische Philharmonie. He also performed Brahms’ violin concerto with the Düsseldorfer Symphoniker at a ballet production of the “Deutsche Oper am Rhein”. In 2014, Mariss Jansons invited him to perform at the opening concert of the “Essentials” series, with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.

His diverse activities in the field of chamber music have led Marc Bouchkov to destinations including Hamburg, Montpellier, Zürich, Colmar, St. Petersburg and Montreal, as well as to the “Heidelberger Frühling” international music festival, the “FESTIVAL NEXT GENERATION” in Bad Ragaz and the “Schubertiade” in Schwarzenberg. In October 2016, he made his debut appearance at London’s Wigmore Hall, where he received the “London Music Masters Award”.

Marc Bouchkov’s 2017/2018 season began with the release of his first CD with works by Eugène Ysaÿe, Ernest Chausson, as well as his own compositions, which appeared under the harmonica mundi label, received a “Diapason Découverte” award, and was nominated for the “ICMA 2018”. Further highlights included another collaboration with the Düsseldorf Ballet, this time for Stravinsky’s violin concerto, concerts with the MDR Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Liège and the Orchestre National de Lorraine, and recitals and chamber music concerts in Paris, Lucerne, Lugano and at the Rheingau Music Festival, as well as a performance at the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg with the ENSEMBLE ESPERANZA, which was awarded an “OPUS KLASSIK” in 2018.

Since 2017, Marc Bouchkov has been given regular teaching assignments at the Conservatoire royal de Liège, and is Artistic Assistant at the Kronberg Academy. In 2019, he was also invited to teach at the International Academy of Music in Liechtenstein.
