A long-standing presence on the Early Music Scene, Pavlo Beznosiuk has earned the respect of musicians, audiences and critics alike through his virtuosity and versatility on Renaissance, Baroque and Classical violins and viola. He has a formidable reputation throughout the world as soloist, chamber musician and increasingly as a director. As well as directing the Avison Ensemble Pavlo has a continuing role as leader/director of The Academy of Ancient Music and has also directed The Orchestra of The Age of Enlightenment, THe Hanover Band, L'Arte dei Suonatori and Le Jeune Orchestre Atlantique.

Pavlo's extensive list of recordings is testament to his popularity as one of the field's outstanding players. They include an acclaimed version of Biber's "Rosary" Sonatas with the actor Timothy West, Vivaldi's Violin Concerti Opus 6 With AAM, world premiere recordings of music by JJ Walther and JP von Westhoff, Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante with Monica Huggett and prizewinning recordings of the Schubert Octet and Cherubini Quartets with the Ensemble Hausmusik. The five-year, ground-breaking project with the Avison Ensemble to record Avison's entire output is drawing to a close with the much-praised recent release of Avison's arrangements of Scarlatti keyboard sonatas.

The next year sees the release of Pavlo's recording of J.S. Bach's solo sonatas and Partitas (on LINN Records) and Handel's Opus 6 Concerti grossi with the Avison Ensemble, duo recitals and a recording of Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante with Rachel Podger, performances of Haydn violin concerti with AAM and recitals combining Bach's solo violin music with music by Berio and Bartok. He also takes part in the first concerts of The Division Lobby, an ensemble exploring group and solo improvisation from 17th Century Italy. Exciting new ventures with the Avison ensemble include recording Vivaldi's op.8 concerti, the entire output of Arcangelo Corelli and concerts marking the anniversaries of Handel and William Herschel, whose violin concerto in D minor he resurrected with the Avison Ensemble.

Pavlo teaches Baroque violin at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London.
