Benjamin Beilman


Benjamin Beilman, one of the leading violinists of his generation, has won international praise for his passionate performances and deep rich tone. His 2023-24 season includes his debut with the St. Louis Symphony and returns to the Minnesota Orchestra, Oregon Symphony and Pacific Symphony, with which he will perform and conduct a program of Vivaldi. In Europe, he performs with the SWR Symphonieorchester Stuttgart, Kölner Philharmonie, Deutsche Radio Philharmonie Saarbrücken, Tonkünstler Orchestra and BBC National Orchestra of Wales, among other ensembles. In 2022 he became one of the youngest artists to be appointed to the faculty of the Curtis Institute of Music, and this season he leads a Curtis string ensemble in a national tour. In recent seasons his passion for contemporary music has led to new works written for him by Frederic Rzewski and Gabriella Smith, the latter co-commissioned by the Schubert Club in St. Paul. He has given multiple performances of Jennifer Higdon’s Violin Concerto and recorded  Thomas Larcher’s concerto with the Tonkünstler Orchester; he also premiered Chris Rogerson’s Violin Concerto, The Little Prince, with the Kansas City Symphony. He also performs in recital and chamber music settings at major halls across the world.
