He has received many awards as a performer and composer and has been invited to participate as a leader and sideman in renowned jazz festivals, including the Cambridge Arts River Festival, the Gubbio Summer Festival in Italy, the Future of Jazz festival in Russia, and more. Throughout his professional life he has performed with Igor Butman, Mayssa Karaa, Laurin Talese, Warren Wolf, Gregory Groover, Nizar Fares, and many others. His artistic vision channels strong support for contemporary independent music and jazz. Nikolai is passionate about discovering new ways to bring together science, poetry, nature, and music, to connect with and inspire others.

Two Track is a music video series designed for Berklee’s YouTube and social media channels that features artists in an intimate setting with only one microphone and continuous camera takes. Each recording session will revolve around a single theme (i.e., connection, love, dreams) that can be expressed by the artist either through their track selection or through a short storytelling segment that will be recorded as part of the performance. The videos in this series will premiere at specific dates and times, but if you miss the premiere, each video will be public on the channel in continuity.
