Daniel Pioro is a soloist, collaborative artist, and advocate for new and experimental music.

Based in London and Edinburgh, he has performed as soloist with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the BBC Philharmonic, the London Contemporary Orchestra, and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

Pioro actively promotes new music and is interested in finding new ways of listening to and creating sound, as well as developing strong collaborations with composers, musicians, artists, and writers. In 2015 Edmund Finnis wrote Elsewhere for him, which he premiered at the South Bank Centre’s first DEEP∞MINIMALISM Festival; following a long period of close collaboration Jonny Greenwood wrote Horror Vacui, a solo violin concerto for Pioro and 68 strings, performed for the first time at the BBC Proms in 2019; while his repertoire also includes Thomas Adès’ cosmic violin concerto, Concentric Paths. He also works closely with the Icelandic composer and producer, Valgeir Sigurðsson, and this partnership has taken his deep listening still further, whether working in the studio or performing live with electronics.

Pioro works closely with the acclaimed author Michael Morpurgo, a collaboration that has created The Storyteller’s Ensemble, a group of musicians devoted to the written and spoken word, as well as working on cross-genre collaborations with artists such as Canadian audiovisual artists, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller.

In March 2019 his debut album, Dust, of music for solo violin and electronics was released on the Bedroom Community label, and in September 2019 his recording of Bach’s Partita No. 2 was released on Octatonic Records.
