Marc Bouchkov was born 1991 into a family of musicians. He received his first lessons at the age of five from his grandfather, Mattis Vaitsner. His first public appearance was just one year later.

Marc Bouchkov’s artistic development has been marked by numerous international prizes and awards. He won First Prize at the highly-regarded International Violin Contest Henri Koch, as well as at the 2010 European Young Concert Artists Auditio in Leipzig. That same year, he received the First Prize for Violin with Special Distinction from the Jury at the CNSM Paris; the prestigious Ebel Prize followed in 2011. In 2012, he was a finalist and award-winner at the 2012 Queen Elizabeth Competition in Brussels. In 2013, he won First Prize at the Montreal International Musical Competition, and was named an award-winner of the Stiftung Juventus by Georges Gara.

Twenty years ago, harmonia mundi and France Musique joined forces to produce the first albums of a new generation of musicians from around the world. Mostly unknown to the general public when they first entered the recording studios, these ‘nouveaux interprètes’ (as the first series was called) included Isabelle Faust, Paul Lewis, Piotr Anderszewski, Emmanuelle Bertrand, Frank Braley, François-Frédéric Guy, Jean‑Guihen Queyras, Alexander Melnikov, Lawrence Power, Ekaterina Sementchuk, Alexandre Tharaud, Cédric Tiberghien, Xavier de Maistre, Alban Gerhardt and many others. Since then, the vast majority of these have made quite a name for themselves and have become the mainstay of many a recordcompany, not least harmonia mundi itself.

Now following the success of ‘Les Nouveaux Interprètes’ (which later became ‘Les Nouveaux Musiciens’),
harmonia#nova is a new series to welcome a new generation of young artists. harmonia#nova will provide a technical, editorial and promotional showcase measuring up to the high production standards of harmonia mundi. Each artist will subsequently have the spotlight trained on them, on disc, online (streaming, downloads, social media) and in images – and then, for a year, in the form of an accompaniment to their artistic development, in concert, in promotional activities, in every territory. It was the least harmonia mundi could do to give all these musicians access to the international diffusion that has made the label’s reputation. Welcome young talents! Long life to harmonia#nova!
– Christian Girardin, label manager
