From Bruch’s Kol Nidre, based on Jewish melodies, to Janacek’s Moravian-inspired Pohadka to Popper’s Hungarian Rhapsody, this is all exciting and rhythmic music with wonderful tunes. Ms. Borowsky has performed in over 30 countries around the world as well as venues such as Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center. Mr. Weiser is the 1996 U.S. Artistic Ambassador of Music who has performed in a wide variety of countries, including Egypt, Syria, Pakistan, Thailand, and Israel.
