"…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."

In addition to solo engagements, Nikita has enjoyed working in collaboration with renowned musicians including Seiji Ozawa, Rodion Shchedrin, Natalia Gutman, Gidon Kremer, Yuri Bashmet, Augustin Dumay, Andras Schiff, Boris Berezovsky, Jean-Philippe Collard, Alexander Kniazev, Rafael Wallfish, Michel Strauss, Jean-Claude Vanden Eyden, Lovro Pogorelich, David Geringas and others.

In collaboration with the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel and the Belgian record label "Fuga Libera" the violinist has released the two CDs: the Third violin concerto of Henri Veiuxtepms with Liege Royal Philharmonic and Patrick Davin, and the monographic album of Edouard Lalo with Sinfonia Varsovia, Augustin Dumay and Jean-Philippe Collard. The Lalo’s CD was given a 5-star review in the French magazine “Diapason”.

"...His technique is top class with a sharpness which is unique. What impresses the most is his ability to play softly and still maintain elegance and focus. It is fantastic how his instrument transforms into a flute or clarinet, and how his playing has a singing quality."
