The past few years have seen a great number of Nimrod Borenstein’s works being commissioned, recorded and premiered at the most prestigious venues and festivals across the globe, from the Royal Festival Hall and Royal Opera House in London to the Salle Gaveau in Paris, Carnegie Hall in New York, and Hong Kong City Hall. His music is performed regularly throughout Europe, Canada, Australia, the Far East, Israel, South America, Russia and the USA. In recent years, he has been commissioned to write the obligatory performance pieces for the Hong Kong International Piano Competition (2019) and the International Jeunesses Musicales Competition for violoncello (2020).
Among his high-profile champions, Vladimir Ashkenazy has conducted several of Borenstein’s compositions, culminating in the recording of an album of his orchestral works for Chandos (named a BBC Music Magazine ‘Choice’). Other leading artists to have performed Borenstein’s music include: Roberto Prosseda, Pascal Rogé, Dmitry Sitkovetsky, the Philharmonia Orchestra, the BBC Philharmonic, the Royal Philharmonic, the Oxford Philharmonic and Israel Camerata. His recent string quartet, Cieli d’Italia, was commissioned by the Quartetto di Cremona, who feature it on their latest album.
