Pavlo Beznosiuk - violin  

Pavlo Beznosiuk has secured his reputation as one of Europe's most respected Baroque violinists over the last twenty-five years with a busy international career as soloist, chamber musician, concertmaster and increasingly as a director.

In the mid 1980s he was involved in pioneering work in the use of Renaissance violins with The Parley of Instruments and was a key 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 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. In 2010 The Avison Ensemble released a recording of Handel's Concerti Grossi Opus 6 and in 2011 released Vivaldi: Concerti Opus 8 both of which have been received enthusiastically in the music press. Other recordings include J. S. Bach's Sonatas & Partitas for Solo Violin, Biber's Rosary Sonatas, Vivaldi's Opus 12 Violin Concerti with The Academy of Ancient Music and Christopher Hogwood, and two recordings of Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante with Monica Huggett and Rachel Podger and works by Walther and Westhoff. He has also performed in Europe, Australia, China, Korea and Singapore.
