The violin teacher is :  Rossi Ovtcharova

I was born in a family of musicians where music sounded all the time. As a small child I remember playing around the music stands of my dad and his rehearsing colleges. He always took me to his concerts.

I started to play the violin at the age of 5 and ever since it has been my passion. When I was 10 I was admitted to the National Music School of Sofia where I graduated with excellent results and an honor “National Diploma”  for a special contribution to the cultural life of the country. Throughout my studies I have played numerous concerts across the country.

 After graduating I received the invitation  to continue my study in The Netherlands with the support of the private fonds  Labberté- Hoedemaker. While studying at both the conservatories of The Hague and Groningen I won the ‘Voorziening voor excelleerde jonge musici” scholarship and was able to spend a year with  professor Günter Pichler ( the first violinist of the Alban Berg quartet) at  the  “Üniversiteit für Muzik und Darstelende Kunst” in Wien.

Finally I received my Master of Music diploma at the conservatory of Amsterdam , studying with Vesko Eschkenazy (concertmaster of the Concertgebouw Orchestra) and Istvan Parkanyi (first violinist of the Orlando quartet) .

Ever since my studies I have been playing regularly with Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, The Residentie Orchestra, Camerata Amsterdam and others. As a cofounder of the chamber music formations     “Priori Piano quartet ” and “Infinity Piano trio ” I performed at many podia through the Netherlands, Italy, Sweden and Bulgaria.

Since 2014 I started working with the duch actress Moniek Nusselein on series of music story tellings, under the name HELDER. Our way of working inspired the founding of “Je Kunst” in Amersfoort, creatief workshop program, combining different cultural disciplines to co-create and perform it’s own play in one day.

My last initiatief is  the “Festival van de Viool”, a one day all-round event dedicated to my instrument – the violin. It just took place for the first time in Amersfoort.
