Violist Kim Kashkashian awarded Golden Bow prize

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Foundation of the Geigenbauschule Brienz has awarded Armenian American violist Kim Kashkashian its Golden Bow, a prize that honors contributions to the world of string instruments, Asbarez reports.

Kashkashian, who is a faculty member at the New England Conservatory, was given the honor at Switzerland’s Meiringen Music Festival in July. The award takes the physical form of an engraved golden bow that was manufactured at Bogenwerkstatte by Johannes and Marianne Finkel.

Among her many honors, in 2012, Kashkashian received a Grammy Award in the “Best Classical Instrumental Solo” category for her performance on “Kurtag and Ligeti: Music for Viola.” She has appeared as a soloist with numerous orchestras around the world, and is a founding member of Music for Food, a charity that fights global hunger.

Past winners of the annual prize have included such distinguished players as Thomas Zehetmair, Patricia Kopatchinskaja, and Natalia Gutman.
