Verified profile

Hello, I'm a full-scholarship student at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. At the moment I'm completing my Bachelor Degree with great success, actively giving performances throughout the UK and Europe. I'm a flexible musician, who can accommodate your requests with great attention to details and leave warm and sincere feelings after the performance. My primary field is classical music (solo and chamber groups) and my repertoire is wide and brilliant, I can find works for all calibre of events. However, I'm also an open-minded and skilful professional, who can also improvise in various styles, ranging from Baroque to Jazz. I have a perfect pitch and great sight-reading. Having previously studied in the oldest specialist music school in London (The Purcell School), I became acquainted with all genres of music and mastered my abilities in Classical Music. I've performed in Germany, France, UK, Russia, the US, Poland, Spain, Italy. Main venues include Wigmore Hall, St Martin in the Fields, Kings Place, The Great Hall of Moscow Conservatoire, Fazioli Hall.

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I always try my best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run-up to the event just let me know.

How much time do you need to set up?

20 minutes is usually enough

If I have a piano at my venue, are you happy to perform on that?

Yes, of course - as long as the piano is in working order and in tune, then I'm happy to play on it! This would be my preference!

Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?

Of course, although it needs to be discussed in advance.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Of course, although it needs to be discussed in advance.

Nikita was extremely accommodating regarding the music I was interested in (lots of Chopin, Mozart, Beethoven, Schumann, Gershwin). Our communication leading up to the event was very professional, and friendly. His playing was exquisite. Although some friends do like classical music, they don't know much about it, I appreciated that Nikita was very down to earth speaking to them about music and his musical journey. I'd certainly thoroughly recommend Nikita without any reservations whatsoever. A very talented young man, with a real panache. Thank you!
