biography
Nikita Boriso-Glebsky is a Belgian-Russian violinist. In 2007, he won the Silver medal and five special prizes in the XIII International Tchaikovsky Competition. Even before the results were announced, "Nesawisimaya Gazeta" awarded Nikita the title of "people's favourite". The victory was followed by an exclusive contract with the Moscow Philharmonic and an eventful tour around Russia. Some of the brightest events of the 2021/22 season include performances with the leading Russian orchestras: the State Orchestra of Russia named after E.F. Svetlanov, Saint-Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, the Russian National Orchestra and conductor Dmitry Matvienko, the Russian National Youth Symphony Orchestra conducted by Alexander Lazarev and the Mariinsky Theatre Symphony Orchestra.


His victory at the Sibelius Competition in Helsinki in 2010 became significant for the violinist. Since then, he has become a welcome guest in Finland: a regular participant of the Turku Music Festival and the Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival. He has performed with the Finnish Radio Orchestra conducted by Hannu Lintu in Moscow and St. Petersburg at concerts dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Independence of Finland. The highlight of last season was a performance with the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra and Emilia Hoving. The season 2021/22 includes performances with the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Nicholas Collon, the Kuopio Symphony Orchestra and conductor Sasha Mäkilä, the Turku Philharmonic Orchestra and Clemens Schuldt.

In 2010, Nikita became the I prize laureate of the Fritz Kreisler International Competition in Vienna. In July 2021, he performed at Wiener Konzerthaus as a part of the "star" Quartet with Nikolai Lugansky, Narek Hakhnazaryan and Maxim Rysanov. Next season, 2022/23, he will become a resident of the Wiener Konzerthaus, presenting a chamber music subscription in a trio with Narek Hakhnazaryan and Georgy Tchaidze. He also performs in Graz on a regular basis.

The victories in the international competitions in Monaco, Brussels and Montreal opened additional opportunities for Nikita such as invitations to the best concert halls in the world and performances with the leading orchestras. The violinist collaborates with Dima Slobodeniouk, David Afkham, Jaime Martin, Sakari Oramo, Vasily Sinaisky, Vladimir Fedoseev, Klaus Mäkelä and others. In summer 2022, as a first violin of the Atrium Quartet, Nikita is taking part in a large-scale project in the Suntory Hall, Tokyo – a performance of all the string quartets by Ludwig van Beethoven.

He is a participant of festivals in Salzburg, Rheingau; La Folle Journee Festival in Nantes, Tokyo, and Yekaterinburg; "December Nights of Svyatoslav Richter"; Beethovenfest in Bonn; "Stars of White Nights" and "Arts Square" festivals in St. Petersburg; Violino il Magico in Italy and many others.
In 2019, Nikita was the first to record the previously unknown concerto by Eugène Ysaÿe together with the Liege Philharmonic Orchestra and Jean-Jacques Kantorov. "A Tribute to Ysaÿe" CD, with a participation of Renaud Capuçon, Henri Demarquette, Pavel Kolesnikov, Stéphane Denève, was awarded the Diapason d'Or.

Nikita Boriso-Glebsky's repertoire includes music by contemporary authors and composers of the twentieth century. He is the first performer of several compositions by Rodion Shchedrin, Alexander Tchaikovsky and Kuzma Bodrov.

He plays the violin created by the Austrian maker Martin Schwalb in 2020 on the model of the Guarneri del Gesù violin from 1744.

Nikita Boriso-Glebsky was born in 1985 in Volgodonsk. He graduated from the Moscow State Conservatory (class of Professor Eduard Grach and Associate Professor Tatiana Berkul), then he was improving his skills under the guidance of Augustin Dumay in Chapelle Musicale Reine Elisabeth and Ana Chumachenko in Kronberg Academy. After years of living and studying in Belgium, and because of his influence on the cultural life of the country, Nikita was granted Belgian citizenship in 2019.

"…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."

"…Edouard Lalo's Symphonie espagnole finds another dynamic soloist here in the young Russian-born violinist Nikita Boriso-Glebsky. His timbre has both sparkle and depth, and he is fully equal to the technical high jumps with which Lalo capitalised on Sarasate's gifts."
