"…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."
