Widely acknowledged as one of the most technically and intellectually challenging works in the solo violin repertory, only a musician with the wealth of knowledge and virtuosic prowess that Pavlo Beznosiuk possesses could deliver Bach's masterpieces with such vitality and insight. Described as an artist with star quality whose playing is full of fantasy and whose range of ideas seems every time more amazing', Pavlo is one of the most versatile musicians working on the early music scene today. Celebrated Baroque violinist Pavlo Beznosiuk performs on a period violin with authentic gut stringing. The Sonatas and Partitas show off every aspect of violin technique; this modern benchmark recording is a masterclass in making the impossible sound, not only possible, but also musically compelling. The famous Chaconne in d minor is widely regarded as one of Bach's greatest contributions and has been frequently transcribed for other instruments, most famously by Ferruccio Busoni for piano. Well known as a soloist, chamber musician and concertmaster Pavlo has led and directed numerous period instrument orchestras including The Academy of Ancient Music (AAM), Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and Avison Ensemble.
