Malcolm Bilson has been in the forefront of the period-instrument movement for more than thirty years.He began his pioneering activity in the early 1970s as a performer of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert on late 18th- and early 19th-century pianos. Since then he has proven to be a key contributor to the restoration of the fortepiano to the concert stage and to fresh recordings of the “mainstream” repertory.

In addition to an extensive career as a soloist and chamber player, Mr. Bilson has toured with the English Baroque Soloists and John Eliot Gardiner, the Academy of Ancient Music with Christopher Hogwood, Concerto Köln, and other early and modern instrument orchestras around the world. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and is a recipient of the James Smithson Bicentennial Medal at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., for his “extraordinary lifetime achievements” as “a pioneer in the performance of period instruments and chamber music in general”.
