Russian cellist Borislav Strulev has been fascinating audiences on some of the world’s most prestigious stages since his U.S. debut at the Kennedy Center in 1993 arranged on initiative of Isaac Stern, Former World Bank President James Wolfensohn and Byron Janis. His charismatic personality, a virtuosic technique and extraordinarily large and beautiful tone have combined with the mature sensitivity of his interpretations to ensure his place amongst the most exciting young instrumentalists to emerge from Russia in recent years. Critics call him a “soloist ... with a rich, singing tone” - The New York Times, The San Francisco Chronicle said of Mr. Strulev he “boasts an enormous, gripping sound, full of bright colors and effortless power; when he plays he commandeers the sonic spotlight with ease.” Associated Press wrote ''cellist Borislav Strulev, channeling no one, or perhaps God.''
