Giles Lewin

Giles Lewin: performer and composer.

I specialise in medieval music and the traditional music of Europe and the Middle East. Foremost a violinist, I have worked with many instruments and styles. I have written and performed music for theatre and radio, and played on many film and television scores.

Through playing instruments from all over the world, I have become familiar with a wide range of musical idioms. This has helped me to understand the close relationship between playing and writing.

This website will introduce you to some of my work, and to the styles that I write and play in. There are also samples of the range of instruments I work with.
