“…he embarked on an unfaltering yet passionate journey through all three movements…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 growly, at others ethereal and angelic.”

“Young soloist Nikita Boriso-Glebsky is a violinist to look out for. Still in his twenties, he approached the piece almost reverentially, as if paying homage to one of the giants of the repertoire, growing in stature and volume to make every one of Tchaikovsky’s tuneful melodies sing out to the audience. The first movement’s brilliant cadenza easily ticked the virtuoso box.” The Scotsman
