This was my third time to collaborate with Zakhar. Once again he delivered beautiful and tasteful strings with high quality recording. A very communicative and easy person to work with. No fuzz
Wow1 This guy. I have no words. He is just brilliant and a dream to work with
To work with Zakhar was a real delightful experience. He provided my song with the most beautiful string arrangement, which fit perfectly and caught the essence of the song. Hopefully I will have the pleasure to ask for his services again. I was simple and easy to collaborate and I warmly recommend his work.
Zakhar is an excellent artist. He delivered exactly what I requested and more!
Zakhar understands music and requires minimal instruction to deliver perfect performances that leave nothing to wish for. I now include solo violin in tracks where I otherwise wouldn't, simply because I want to have Zakhar's playing in it.
Zakhar took my simple folk love song and made it sound like a classic 1960s love ballad. Amazing work.
He's a nuanced and skilled strings arranger and performer, and if that wasn't enough, he also has wonderful musical intuition: I didn't have to give him a single note, since his arrangements and performances were perfect for my song, right from the start.
Zakhar is a great musician and professional, and I fully recommend his services!

Zakhar is absolutely one of my favorite artists to collaborate with. He always delivers excellent work and is always ahead of schedule. I highly recommend him if you are looking for an excellent violinist.
I received a phenomenal solo violin performance for my orchestral track just hours after my request. Zakhar's tone is magnificent and full of emotion. It could have been played in a hundred different ways, but Zakhar played in a way that perfectly fit the rest of the score and gave it new life. It is obvious he has lots of experience and a great understanding of music.
Always top-flight work from Zakhar! Lightning fast delivery and spot on! Highly recommended!!
