Pavlo Beznosiuk, renowned for his virtuosity and versatility, has secured his reputation as one of Europe’s most respected Baroque violinists over the last 25 years with a busy international career as soloist, chamber musician, concertmaster and increasingly as a director. In the mid 80’s he was involved in pioneering work in the use of Renaissance violins with The Parley of Instruments and was a founding member of the groundbreaking Medieval ensemble The New London Consort playing Vielles, Rebec and Lira da Braccio. He is a frequent soloist/director with the Academy of Ancient Music and recent recital work has included performances of Biber’s complete cycle of Rosary sonatas and concerts combining solo violin music of Bach with that of Berio and Bartók. As musical director of The Avison Ensemble he has completed an exhaustive recorded survey of the music of Charles Avison and in 2010 released a recording of Handel’s Concerti Grossi Opus 6 (LINN CKD362) which has been received enthusiastically in the music press. Other recordings include Biber’s “Rosary” Sonatas, Vivaldi’s Op. 12 Violin Concerti with The Academy of Ancient Music and Christopher Hogwood, Vivaldi’s Concerti Opus 8 with the Avison Ensemble (released on LINN in 2011, CKD 365) and two recordings of Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante with Monica Huggett and Rachel Podger. Pavlo teaches at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and The Royal Academy of Music in London.
