Recently named a BBC New Generation Artist—an honor which has led him to perform with all the BBC orchestras, at Wigmore Hall, and on multiple BBC broadcasts—Tom Borrow’s star is on the rise. A protégé of Murray Perahia, at 23 years old he has won every national piano competition in his native Israel. Borrow’s US debut with the Cleveland Orchestra two seasons ago has put him on the map stateside, as well: the Cleveland Plain Dealer raved, “Borrow stands out with a touch that’s both light and powerful, and supremely incandescent.” The centerpiece of his Berkeley debut recital is Schumann’s fiendishly difficult, wildly imaginative, and impassioned Fantasy in C major.
