Meet Daniel Pioro: soloist, collaborative artist, and advocate for new and experimental music

A soloist, collaborative artist, and advocate for new and experimental music, violinist Daniel Pioro made his BBC Proms debut in 2019, with a performance described as “easily the most engaging premiere of the season so far” by The Daily Telegraph.

Once leader of the London Contemporary Orchestra, Daniel continues to grow his international career, with highlights of this season including the world premiere of Tom Coult’s first violin concerto with the BBC Philharmonic at Bridgewater Hall, his Barbican Centre debut, and a North American debut at the Big Ears Festival in 2020.

Alongside performing core classical repertoire, Daniel actively promotes new music, and is interested in finding new ways of listening to and creating sound. A natural collaborator, he works closely with composer and guitarist Jonny Greenwood, children’s author Michael Morpurgo, and Icelandic composer and producer Valgeir Sigurðsson, among others.

We are delighted to welcome Daniel to the Askonas Holt family, and look forward to working with him in the years ahead. He will be represented by Terry Shew and Ignatius Sokal.
