“Nikita Boriso-Glebsky distinguishes himself with the depth of musical thinking, impeccable technique and a rare combination of elegance, naturalness and uncompromising severity of performance.”
La Libre Belgique
“The BSO tweet at the interval summed up his performance: You know when the bow hairs begin to fly after the first two bars you are in for a treat. Sublime playing from Nikita Boriso-Glebsky!”
Stephanie Hall, Bournemouth Echo
The brilliant young violinist Nikita Boriso-Glebsky is considered as one of the most established Russian violinists of his generation. “Nikita Boriso-Glebsky distinguishes himself through deep musical thinking, impeccable technique and a rare combination of elegance, instinctiveness and uncompromising severity of performance.” (La Libre Belgique) Hannah Boylin from Leftlion.co.uk mentioned that “the most notable thing about Boriso-Glebsky’s performance was his remarkable and varied tone. He cleverly manipulated his instrument to show its versatility; at times his violin was raw and growling, at others ethereal and angelic.”
In 2010 Nikita Boriso-Glebsky won the International Jean Sibelius and the International Fritz Kreisler Violin competitions. He has also been awarded top prizes in nine other prestigious violin contests including the Tchaikovsky, the Queen Elisabeth and the Monte Carlo Violin Masters competitions.
Highlights of the last season included performances with the Bournemouth Symphony, the Orchestra National de Belgique, the Sao Paulo Symphony Orchestra, the China National Symphony Orchestra, the Nagoya Philharmonic Orchestra, the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra, the Lahti Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestre Pasdeloup Paris (debut at Philharmonie de Paris), and Duisburg Philharmonic Orchestra, among others.
