Daniel HeifEtz CONCERTMASTER
Violinist Nikita Borisevich, who attended the Heifetz International Music Institute in the summers of 2010 and 2012, swept onto the Russian stage as one of today’s most promising young virtuosos. He was born into a musical family and was five years old when he began studying the violin. His first teacher was his father, who was trained by students of the renowned Russian teachers Pyotr Stolyarsky and Boris Gutnikov. At age twelve, he made his debut with the Perm Opera Symphony Orchestra. Later, Nikita enrolled in the Moscow Conservatory on full scholarship to study with Maya Glezarova and Marina Keselman.
During his years at the Moscow Conservatory, Nikita toured and performed in Ukraine, Latvia, Spain, and the Czech Republic. Nikita also broadened his musical horizons by attending the Russische Musikakdemie Dortmund (2005). He has performed in such concert halls as the Great hall of the Moscow conservatory, Manuel de Falla Auditorium (Granada, Spain), and the W.M.P. Concert Hall “Strad for Lunch” music series in New York City.
Nikita is now pursuing further graduate studies at the Peabody Conservatory with Victor Danchenko. In 2015, he was Artist-in-Residence for the EPPM El Paso Pro Musica Festival, and also offered Master Classes at the UTEP - The University of Texas at El Paso.
