About the Artist:

Twenty-five year old American violinist Benjamin Beilman is winning plaudits in both North America and Europe for his passionate performances and deep rich tone, which the Washington Post called “mightily impressive” and the New York Times described as “muscular with a glint of violence”. The Times also praised his “handsome technique, burnished sound, and quiet confidence [which] showed why he has come so far so fast”. Following his performance of the Sibelius Concerto at the Montreal Competition, the Strad described the 25-year-old American’s performance of the slow movement as “pure poetry”.

Beilman has received several prestigious awards including a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship in 2014, and an Avery Fisher Career Grant and a London Music Masters Award in 2012. In 2010 he won the First Prize in the Young Concert Artists International Auditions, and as First Prize Winner of the 2010 Montréal International Musical Competition and winner of the People’s Choice Award, Beilman recorded Prokofiev’s complete sonatas for violin on the Analekta label in 2011.
