Aged six, Julian Bliss performed at Prince Phillip’s birthday party at Buckingham Palace. He’s now one of the world’s most pre-eminent clarinettists. Julian has performed in leading venues with international orchestras. He has inspired a generation of young players as concerto soloist, chamber musician, jazz artist, and is a timeless musical explorer.
James Baillieu is a Professor at the Royal Academy of Music and a leading song and chamber music pianist, described by the Daily Telegraph as, “in a class of his own.” He has performed throughout the world.
This remarkable duo will perform a programme that includes Brahms’ 1st Sonata, Schumann, Berg and Stravinsky.
‘It isn’t just [Bliss’s] technique, though that is astonishing enough. It’s the wit, poise and vivacity in his playing.”
‘[Baillieu is] in a class of his own.’
