Marc to receive 2016 Rheingau Festival award
Marc has been awarded the 2016 Rheingau Music Festival prize, worth €15,000. He will receive the award on 26 July during a winners’ concert at Schloss Johannisberg, near Frankfurt. In its citation, the Festival jury stated:
‘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.’ It also praised Bouchkov’s ‘seductive, espressivo sense of sound, coupled with flawless technique’, describing him as ‘both a modern and versatile player with an individual artistic personality’.
