Biography
Boris Kuschnir was born in Kiev and studied the violin at the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory with Boris Belenky and chamber music with Valentin Berlinsky of the Borodin Quartet. His many encounters with Shostakovich and David Oistrakh (with whom he also studied), had a lasting influence on his artistic development. He was a founding member of the Moscow String Quartet, with which he played for nine years. He also founded the Vienna Schubert Trio and the Vienna Brahms Trio. Since 2002 he has also been a member of the Kopelman Quartet. He has made numerous recordings for labels including EMI and Naxos and has won numerous prizes at international competitions for both violin and chamber music. Boris Kuschnir teaches at the Vienna Conservatory and at the University of Music in Graz; his pupils have included J. Rachlin, N. Znaider, L. Baich, and A. Soumm. Boris Kuschnir is a member of the jury of various international music competitions (including the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, the Paganini Competition in Genoa, and the Long- Thibaud Competition in Paris) and performs with distinguished partners. He was awarded the use of the Stradivarius violin (‘La Rouse Boughton’, 1703) by the Austrian National Bank in recognition of his services to music.
