Margarita Pochebut

She began her professional life at the age of 6. After six months of study, she made her debut as a soloist with the symphony orchestra. The same year, Margarita took part in the first competition in her life, the Misсha Elman International Violin Competition, and won the Grand Prix.

Today, her career includes more than thirty performances with symphony orchestras around the world with diverse and challenging programs.

During eight years of active concert activity, Margarita has performed in the most prestigious concert halls of Ukraine, Italy, Belgium, France, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia.

Today, her repertoire includes virtuoso works by Beethoven, Wieniawski, Saint-Saëns, Mendelssohn, Paganini, and many other composers.

She has won dozens of prestigious international competitions, including the Ysaye Junior International Music Competition, International Astana Violin Competition, Il Piccolo Violino Magico International Competition for young violinists, Weimar International Violin Listz Competition 2022, Concertino Praha 2023, and others.

Margarita has performed at major festivals such as Bellerive (Switzerland), Gstaad Menuhin Festival (Switzerland), ArtDialog (Switzerland), Dvorakova Praha (Czech Republic), Odesa classics, and LvivMozArt (Ukraine).

Today, the violinist is the youngest student of the International Menuhin Music Academy in Switzerland, combining this with her studies at the Mykola Lysenko Kyiv Music Lyceum (class of Associate Professor Natalia Annenkova).

The young musician regularly participates in master classes at the world’s leading violin schools, improving her performance skills.

Margarita not only performs as a solo artist, but also creates duet programs together with her older sister, pianist Elizaveta Pochebut.

Since November 2023, Margarita has been playing a violin by Lorenzo Storioni, made in 1784 in Cremona and donated by the Stretton Society.
