In demand internationally as soloist and chamber musician across an unusually extensive repertoire, he has been described as “a marvel, [who] can play anything in any style” (The Herald) and “mercurially brilliant” (The Strad). He made his London concert debut at the age of 13 and has appeared in a wide-ranging concerto repertoire of over 40 major works.  His recording partners include Jennifer Pike and Alison Balsom, for whom he has also composed pieces to commission.  Tom also regularly features as soloist on film soundtracks, including the Oscar-nominated, Golden Globe-winning score for The Theory of Everything.
