Nimrod Borenstein

The past few years have seen a great number of, British-French-Israeli composer Nimrod Borenstein’s works being premiered across the globe. Leading artists and orchestras who play his work include Vladimir Ashkenazy, the Philharmonia Orchestra, the BBC Philharmonic orchestra, the Oxford Philharmonic, Roberto Prosseda, Dmitry Sitkovetsky, and many others.  In 1984 Borenstein won the competition of the Cziffra Foundation and became one of its Laureates. He moved to London in 1986, to pursue his studies as a violinist with Itzhak Rashkovsky at the Royal College of Music. He was then awarded the highest scholarship from the Leverhulme Trust to study composition at the Royal Academy of Music (where he is now an Associate). Among his high-profile supporters, Vladimir Ashkenazy has conducted several of Nimrod's compositions, culminating in his recording an entire album of Nimrod's orchestral  works for Chandos, released in 2017. The recording won hugely positive reviews, including BBC Music Magazine 'Choice' ("an exuberantly inventive composer"), Classica (4 stars - "not only possesses a solid craftsmanship but even more important, a true personality. Finally, a music full of happiness!") and MusicWeb International ("For sheer pleasure and melodic inventiveness nothing I have heard this year touches this delightful CD - charming and accessible music to discover and enjoy.")  Borenstein’s music continues to rise in popularity, with his Suspended opus 69 in particular proving a huge international success with more than 150 performances since its premiere in January 2015 at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Recent months have seen various notable premieres including the choral work “And there was light” , Concerto for Piano, Trumpet and strings orchestra, and Cello Concerto No 2. Nimrod’s substantial catalogue continues to develop and currently numbers more than eighty works including ballet, concertos, orchestral and chamber music as well as vocal and solo instrumental pieces.
