Violist wins scholarship

Student violist Uliana Alekseev, who is fast becoming a musical sensation in South Africa, has been awarded a coveted 10-day job-shadow scholarship by the management of the Stellenbosch International Chamber Music Festival (SICFM).

Although the festival will not take place for the first time in 17 years, the festival management decided to grant the scholarship, first awarded in 2013 and valued at R45 000.

It provides the means for a deserving student to travel internationally to the place of work or residence of a Stellenbosch International Chamber Music Festival (SICMF) faculty member, engaging in lessons, rehearsals, recording sessions and the daily life of the member for 10 days.

Alekseev, a student of Paula Gabriel at the South African College of Music, has won numerous awards as both soloist and chamber musician. She also performed as a soloist with the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra at its annual Youth Music Festival in September 2018.

The scholarship recipient attended the SICMF in both 2016 and 2018, making her eligible for this year’s award.

SICMF faculty members Gareth Lubbe and Alissa Margulis, both of whom teach at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen, Germany, have undertaken to mentor Alekseev for the duration.

This most dedicated of young music students is also pedigreed in the music arts. She the daughter of Cape Town-based violinist Farida Bacharova, herself a faculty member of the SICMF.

Festival director Peter Martens says: “Whereas the concerts and daily activities of the SICMF over a period of 10 days each year are truly sensational, it is the plethora of instruments, sheet music and accessory donations, connections made and international study scholarships that see the reach of the SICMF extend well beyond a mere 10 days each year.”

Loyal patrons can still log on to the website www.sicmf.co.za to watch last year’s concerts in anticipation of the 17th edition of the SICMF, which will take place in July 2021.
