VIOLIN 1971 : Fourth Prize
Born in Italy of Russian origin and Argentinian and German nationality, Ana Chumachenco started playing violin at the age of four under the supervision of her father - a disciple of Leopold Auer - and later with Ljerko Spiller in Buenos Aires.

After enjoying considerable success in her early years in South America, she returned to Europe at the age of 17 to continue her studies. Just one year later she was awarded the gold medal at the Carl Flesch competition in London and, a few years later, 4th prize at the Queen Elisabeth Competition. Her musical mentors in those years included Joseph Szigeti, Sandor Vegh and Yehudi Menuhin.

Besides her appearances in recitals and as a soloist with leading orchestras, Ana Chumachenco devotes much of her time to chamber music. For more than 20 years she has played in the Munich String Trio with violist Oscar Lysy and cellist Walter Notas.

Ana Chumachenco spent many years as Violin Professor at the Munich University of Music; many of her students went on to outstanding international careers. She has been a juror in the Queen Elisabeth Competition and the International Jean Sibelius Violin Competition in Helsinki. Ana Chumachenco is a professor at Kronberg Academy Masters.
