"Boris Bizjak's performance was a triumph.  His technique completely transcended the barriers that the instrument puts in the way of a performer."                                  

Jure Dobovišek, Dnevnik

Most recently with the Chamber Orchestra of Slovenian Philharmonic under Dmitry Sitkovetsky, City of London Chamber Orchestra under Michael Gammie, London Euphonia Orchestra, Symphony Orchestra of the National Theatre Maribor under Milivoj Šurbek, Solisti Divini and the London Brandenburg Soloists.
