Belgian violinist heads prizewinners in Montreal competition

Thursday, 16 May 2013

Marc Bouchkov was awarded first prize in the Montreal International Musical Competition, which this year was for violinists. The 22-year-old Belgian, who studies with Boris Garlitsky at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen, received C$30,000. Second prize went to American Stephen Waarts, 16. Another 16-year-old, Zeyu Victor Li, from China, took third prize.

Bouchkov, who performed the Tchaikovsky Concerto in the Montreal final, was a prizewinner at the 2012 Queen Elisabeth Competition. He also won first prize at the Young Concert Artists auditions in Leipzig in 2010.
