About the Show:

“Nikita and Margarita gave a magical and diverse performance with extraordinarily nuanced artistry, virtuoso fireworks and ensemble collaboration."

William Riddle, Artistic and Executive Director of Venetian Arts Society, FL

The Borisevich Duo, featuring pianist Margarita Loukachkina and violinist Nikita Borisevich, is an internationally acclaimed violin and piano duet, frequently performing across the United States and Europe.

Mr. Borisevich and Ms. Loukachkina are winners of numerous international music competitions and have collectively performed on world renown stages such as The Kennedy Center( Washington, DC), Grand Hall of Moscow Conservatory( Moscow, Russia), Shriver Hall (Baltimore, Maryland) and Manuel de Falla Auditorium( Granada, Spain), among others. 

The Borisevich Duo was a recipient of the inaugural Young Artist Development Series Award at The El Paso Pro Musica Festival in collaboration with Peabody Conservatory, and has since then been invited to do a residency at El Paso Pro Musica Festival and Sitka Summer Music Festival by Grammy-Award-winning cellist, Zuill Bailey.

In the 2018-2019 concert season Nikita and Margarita made a debut at the Venetian Arts Society in Florida, the Chamber Music Society of Maryland, and gave performances in Metz, France and Luxembourg.

This season the Borisevich Duo will make a debut at the Alden Theatre in McLean(VA), the Gualala Chamber Music Society in Gualala(CA), the Tuesday Concert Series in Washington, DC and will return to Sitka Summer Music Festival in Sitka, Alaska.

Also this season the duo will be releasing their debut CD, which will feature a piece by award-winning American composer, Zach Gulaboff-Davis which the duo premiered last season among other works.

About The Series

Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, in collaboration with Shandelee Music Festival, is pleased to announce the third annual return of PLAY: The Classics in the magnificent Event Gallery at Bethel Woods. The goal of this series is to encourage and foster young talented emerging artists, help to build and cultivate a younger audience and increase attendance of all ages. Each concert is preceded by an enjoyable introduction to the music being performed, and followed by a specialty dessert reception where you will have the opportunity to relax, see friends and meet new acquaintances.

In addition to support from Bethel Woods Center for the Arts and the Shandelee Music Festival, P.L.A.Y. the Classics is funded in part by a gift from the Guenther Family and by a grant from the Rea Charitable Trust.
