Menuhin Academy


Poet Arthur Rimbaud claimed that “no one’s serious at 17…“ but in fact, it was at the tender age of 17 that Ukranian violinist Bohdan Luts won his first ever international competition.

A graduate of the prestigious Menuhin Academy, he will be joined on stage by another rising star in the piano world, Victor Demarquette, who just recently turned 20. They will bring their youthful vigour to a performance of Felix Mendelssohn’s Concerto for Piano, Violin and strings, written when the composer was only 14 years old. The orchestra of soloists from the Menuhin Academy will continue the concert with a performance of his String Symphony n°9, influenced by the alpine, pastoral music he heard during a trip to Switzerland.
