My first time working with Oleg. Everything went smoothly. He is an excellent violinist, easy to work with and he delivered very well recorded tracks.
Working with Oleg is always a pleasure. He, Natalia, and the other musicians they work with are the only persons my daughter wants to record her compositions. We are grateful to have found them.
They are all magnificent performers who really understand what you want from the music. They play so expressively and pay so much attention to detail that the end product always exceeds expectations. I highly recommend Oleg!
Fantastic collaboration. I was impressed at the diversity of interpretation options that Oleg recorded, each one very sensitive, nuanced and sophisticated. Each take recorded with 3 high quality mics, leaving a lot of flexibility for achieving the best sound during mixing, Oleg also gave me a lot of useful advice on how to use each signal. Also a very nice touch that for every revision, in addition to the raw take, Oleg also sent a "preview" mix with the rest of my track.
Oleg did an amazing part of violin.
Sensitive and with a very beautiful interpretation.
Oleg came up with wonderful strings arrangements for a very experimental piece of music. Again, I am deeply pleased with his contribution. He has become essential to my music.
Oleg proposed a string quartet arrangement for this piece plus grand piano, and the final result was above my expectations. Oleg's virtuosity as a violinist keeps amazing me. In addition to that, communication with him could not be better.
Oleg has become a recurrent musician for my music. Finding him was like finding a treasure. He has contributed so much to my compositions that words are not enough to thank him.
It has been another great session with Oleg. His string quartet arrangements were superb!
Aside from being a violin virtuoso, Oleg was prompt and clear in his communications, and generous in his bid. He went above and beyond with this piece. Highly recommend.
Oleg Bezuglov is a virtuoso violin player, a magnificent composer and arranger. There are moments in life when one is blessed enough to find a musician like Oleg. For me, music is more than the art of combining sounds —music is a force for good that you feel deep inside. Oleg is one of those gifted souls that captures your vision right away and exceeds your expectations. It has been an honour working with Oleg; I highly recommend him as one of the best session musicians I have worked with.
