„Geigerisch agiert BOHÓRQUEZ absolut souverän. Der Klang seiner Guarneri del Gesù Violine dringt selbst im Pianissimo bis in den letzten Winkel des Kammermusiksaals”, so schrieb Mario-Felix Vogt in der Zeitung ‘Berliner Morgenpost’ über den Auftritt von Oscar Bohórquez am 18.November 2023 in der Berliner Philharmonie. “Violinistisch heikle Dinge wie Dezimklänge im Flageolett meistert er souverän, auch die wahnwitzigen Läufe und Pizzicati in den Solo-Capricen bringt er meisterhaft zum Klingen.” In Deutschland gastierte Oscar Bohórquez unter anderem in der Alten Oper Frankfurt, in der Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, in der Liederhalle Stuttgart, im Leipziger Gewandhaus, sowie in der Berliner Philharmonie auf.
