This fall, AFIPO will present one of Israel’s most talented young pianists, Tom Borrow, in a series of events from coast to coast.
Tom has received several accolades in recent years, named by International Piano magazine as their ‘One to Watch’, Musical America’s ‘New Artist of the Month’, featured as an outstanding young talent by WWFM Radio in the United States, and most recently a BBC New Generation Artist for 2021-23.
Born in Tel Aviv in 2000, Tom Borrow began studying piano aged five with Dr. Michal Tal at the Givatayim Music Conservatory, and currently studies with Prof. Tomer Lev of the Buchmann-Mehta School of Music at Tel Aviv University. Tom has been regularly mentored by Murray Perahia, through the Jerusalem Music Centre’s program for outstanding young musicians. Tom has won every national piano competition in Israel.
In January 2019, Tom Borrow was called on to replace renowned pianist Khatia Buniatishvili in a series of 12 concerts with the Israel Philharmonic. At only 36 hours’ notice, he performed Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G to sensational public and critical acclaim. Following this successful series Tom was further presented by the IPO in gala concerts held in London and Mexico City, and re-invited for a second subscription series.
Tom has been invited by major orchestras around the world – recent and forthcoming engagements include the Cleveland Orchestra, Baltimore Symphony, Atlanta Symphony, London Philharmonic, BBC Symphony Orchestra, New Jersey Symphony and others – and is invited by leading conductors including Semyon Bychkov, Thierry Fischer, Robert Trevino, and Peter Oundjian.
Equally in-demand on the chamber music and recital fronts, recent and upcoming engagements include the Verbier Festival, Wigmore Hall, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, and Berlin Konzerthaus.
