This generation of violinists has failedmain
The violin pedagogue Edward Wulfson has given a combative interview to the Russian journalist Marina Arshinova.
In it, he asserts that there are only two present-day violinists of the highest quality – Janine Jansen and Julia Fischer – and two more coming up: Daniel Lozakovich (pictured) and Marc Bouchkov, both of them his students. The rest, he asserts, are uninteresting.
Wulfson maintains that Bouchkov should have won the Tchaikovsky competition, but for an error on the conductor’s part.
