Lisa Beznosiuk

Principal flute

Born in England Lisa Beznosiuk is one of the worlds leading performers on early flutes. In her dual capacities as soloist and orchestral principal, she has travelled the world playing a wide range of 18th and 19th century repertoire with some of its finest interpreters. Among other distinguished positions, she is principal flute of The English Concert with whom she has recorded Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No.5 and Suite in B minor and a highly acclaimed set of Vivaldi’s Op.10 Concertos.
Her complete sets of the solo sonatas of Handel and Bach have been critically acclaimed, while her latest recording is of the Mozart Flute Quartets and Beethoven Serenade, which she performs on an original 4-keyed flute. Lisa also features on many discs of orchestral music, and particularly relishes the challenge of playing works by later 19th century composers on the conical, keyed flutes of that era. Lisa is Professor of Early Flutes at London’s Royal Academy of Music, Guildhall School of Music and Royal College of Music.
