The American Virtuosi, the phenomenal musical family from Maryland, USA, have been praised all over the world for their outstanding musicianship, both in individual and collaborative performances. Music experts and audiences have enthusiastically applauded them not only for their musical achievements, but also for exemplifying the effectiveness of a family working together in harmony.
The musical talents of this family have been nurtured and encouraged under the guidance of Charles Borowsky and Cecylia Barczyk-Borowsky.

[b]Cecylia[/b] is an internationally renowned cellist who has performed in over 80 countries, received many international and national awards including the Paderewski Medal for Outstanding Contributions to Music and Society, and won prizes in international competitions, including the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, J.S. Bach Competition of Leipzig, and the Cassado Competition in Florence.

[b]Charles[/b] is a noted social scientist who has utilized the arts to build bridges among people and nations. He has organized many international conferences and festivals dedicated to the promotion of music as a vital tool for cultural, social, and economic progress. He also plays the harmonica and occasionally performs together with his family.

Charles and Cecylia's love for music has affected their children. The youngest member of the family is eleven-year-old Frances Grace, who takes after her mother in performing on the cello. In 2001, she received the The Young Cellist Award from the International Friends of the Cello Association. Sixteen-year-old Emmanuel, acknowledged as one of the most outstanding violinists of his generation, has studied with Zoltan Szabo, Gudny Kvaran, Roman Totenberg, Erick Friedman, Konstanty Kulka, and the late Dorothy DeLay. In September 2000, Emmanuel represented North America at the World Child Prodigies Concert organized by UNESCO. In 2002, he was selected to perform on the internationally syndicated radio show, From the Top (2002). Together with his sister Elizabeth, he received the Best '99 CD Award for his recording of Pearls of Music. Elizabeth, at twenty years of age, has already achieved international recognition both as an outstanding pianist and promising composer. She is a four time winner of the United States Chopin Foundation's Scholarship Competition, winner of the International Young Artists Award, Heidelberg Grand Prix, and the National Foundation for the Arts Merit Award. In 2003 Elizabeth received the Jerusalem Medal for her composition "Israeli Dance:
Let Us Go to Jerusalem, the City of Peace." The work was premiered in Washington D.C. by The King David Soloists of the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra.
She has been guided by great teachers including: Ann Schein, Leon Fleisher, Krystian Zimmerman, Reynaldo Reyes, Andrzej Jasinski and Arnaldo Cohen.

The American Virtuosi have shared their talents with people of all walks of life around the world. They have performed in both Americas, Asia, and Europe. They have frequently appeared on television and radio both in the USA and abroad; several of their concerts were nationally and internationally broadcast. Their CDs (Pearls of Music, Belle Époque, VCPF, and Music for Peace in the Middle East) have been distributed worldwide through online music retailers.

Michele Forman

Only available recording of Allegro Brillante
This was the only recording of Allegro Brillante by Ten Have we could find...the violin teacher however commented that the balance between piano and violin was off and the piano was too close to the microphone which spoiled the recording.

Joni Chang

Great CD, Great performers
I really am confused as to why the first reviewer said the piano is too loud and that it "spoiled" the recording... This is certainly not the case! All collaborative tracks on this CD have superior sound and commendable balanace between the soloist and pianist. Great interpretations; very fresh and lively and touching.

Professor
I had a chance to hear the Borowsky Family live performance. After that, I bought their CD..
I have been w4owerwhelmed by the quality of their musicianship. The CD is of greatest quality!

I urge people to buy it not only for listening but for motivating young musicians to reach to the stars.

Karlheinz Bernstein

An outstanding selection and an impressive performance!
The American Virtuosi deserve highest praise for this outstanding selection and impressive performance of all-time master pieces. The musicians who are a close family demonstrate world class. Their performing is dynamic, inspiring, creative, and very communicative. This CD should be in the collection of avery family who may have aspirations for a great quality of life through good music.

Dr. Michal Maisky

It takes an expert for a competent review
After reading the review by M. Forman I listened to the CD once again. I also asked for oinion both a professional violinist and a recording engineer. We all concluded that the recording is outstanding; the young violinist-Emmanuel Borowsky, at that time 11- did a great job and the piano has not overshadowed him at all!It is indeed a great CD and I highly recommend it to all, particaular students aspiring for greatness.
