His talents do not end at his virtuosity on the violin, his musical insight and knowledge are further acknowledged by the major arts and cultural institutions, inviting him to conduct guest lectures and master classes in significant music festivals.

Ultimately, Nikolai is the consummate charismatic artiste. His inherent urge to share his music takes him all over the world to perform and teach. In his words:
“It is important to ‘surprise’ the listeners when I play, when there is a dose of unexpectedness and anticipation in the ‘story of the music’, when the listener starts to sit upright, arresting focus to be led by the music, beyond the immediate senses… in such moments, the player, listener, notes and the space, become one. And my playing is privileged to will this exhilarating trance!’“
