In 2016, at the tender age of 20, Veriko Tchumburidze won the First Prize at the prestigious International Henryk Wieniawski Violin Competition to attract immediate attention of the musical world.

Born in Adana, Turkey, in 1996, Veriko Tchumburidze began her education at Mersin University State Conservatory with Selahattin Yunku and Lili Tchumburidze.

In 2013, the Turkish music magazine Andante awarded Tchumburidze the title of the country’s “Best Emerging Musician”. She performed at the opening concert of the 41th Istanbul Music Festival with the Borusan Symphony Orchestra, and was invited to participate in the Seiji Ozawa Academy Masterclass and the Verbier Festival in Switzerland.

The live recording of her concert with YMWS scholars at the Zurich Tonhalle in the Chamber Series in March 2014 earned her an invitation to perform with the Swiss Chamber Orchestra in Lucerne KKL. After this concert she was selected by Orpheum Musik Stiftung Zürich to release a CD series with the Munich Chamber Orchestra under the baton of Howard Griths. She has played with such international orchestras as the Züricher Kammerorchester, the Münchener Kammerorchester, the Brandenburgisches Staatsorchester, the Musikkollegium Winterthur, the Mariinski Theather Orchestra, the Borusan Philarmonic Orchestra and the Sinfonia Varsovia.

In January 2016, she performed in Zurich to promote her rst CD for Sony, and recorded John Williams’ music to “Schindler’s List” with the Brandenburgisches Kammerorchester and Howard Griths for Klanglogo. In the wake of her performances, Orpheum Stiftung chose
Tchumburidze to headline the opening concert of Zürich Opernhaus Film Festival in 2016. In June 2016, a member of Trio Arte ensemble, Tchumburidze was awarded the rst prize in chamber music category at Pietro Argento International Music Competition in Gioia del Colle, Italy. Trio Arte also performed the world premiere of “Ludus Modalis”, a piece written for the Trio by the renowned Turkish composer Özkan Manav.
