His chamber music collaborators are a varied group, including cellist Pieter Wispelwey, violinist Pekka Kuusisto, and the Doric String Quartet. Beatson has worked extensively with contemporary composers, performing new works by Harrison Birtwistle, Heinz Holliger, and Helena Winkelman, among others. He has taught summer courses and given master classes at British universities, including the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, and the Birmingham Conservatoire at Birmingham City University. Beatson is the founder and artistic director of the French chamber music festival Musique à Marsac. Beatson's recording career began in 2009 with a recital of music by Schumann, Grieg, Brahms, and Berg on the Somm label. He has also recorded for Champs Hill, Claves, and BIS, where in 2021, he issued an album of Beethoven violin sonatas with violinist Viktoria Mullova.
