Get ready for "Musical journey": new release with Georgy Tchaidze
Last week, from 18 to 21 August, the musicians were in Paris to record a new album on the Aparté label. "My conception of the program is 'Musical journey," Nikita Boriso-Glebsky said about the new album. "It starts in Russia, then goes through Finland, Sweden, Norway, England, etc – imagine that someone is travelling country by country, crossing borders without jumps – and ends in Russia again, as both Georgy and me are Russian. I thought it would be interesting for the listeners to not only enjoy a nice music of violin miniatures but also to follow and to hear the differences of national musical cultures of different countries".

Stravinsky – Russia and Switzerland, Sibelius – Finland, Beethoven – Ukraine. Here are just some of the composers and countries from the upcoming album. We'll announce more details closer to the release date.

The Andermatt Festival
The Andermatt Music Winter Festival took place in the very heart of the Swiss Alps from January 15 to 18 celebrating Beethoven's 250th anniversary. Nikita performed with the English Classical Players conducted by Jonathan Brett, and also his good chamber music partner Georgy Tchaidze. A writer from Luzerner Zeitung newspaper said this about Nikita's performance with an orchestra: 'The highlight of the evening was the performance of the Russian violinist Nikita Boriso-Glebsky with the Beethoven violin concerto. With excellent intonation — and above all a lot of ferocity — he portrays the composer as an angry man. Quite an alternative to the flying take of the century with Jascha Heifetz, his game is an intense struggle. The runs are blown up from below, the cadenzas screwed up one level of difficulty. Dramatic, with forward drive. Merciless, but electrifying.'
