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.'
