Minnesota Beethoven Festival Presents: Julian Bliss (Clarinet)
July 11 @ 7:30 PM
Julian Bliss is one of the world’s finest clarinetists, excelling as a concerto soloist, chamber musician, jazz artist, masterclass leader, and tireless musical explorer. He has inspired a generation of young players as a guest lecturer and the creator of the Leblanc Bliss range of affordable clarinets, thereby introducing a substantial new audience to his instrument.
Born in the U.K., Julian started playing the clarinet age 4, going on to study in the U.S. at Indiana University and in Germany under Sabine Meyer. The breadth and depth of his artistry are reflected in the diversity and distinction of his work. In recital and chamber music, he has played at most of the world’s leading festivals and venues including Gstaad, Mecklenburg Vorpommern, Verbier, Wigmore Hall (London) and Lincoln Center (New York). As soloist, current performances include concerts with the Sao Paolo Symphony, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra of Paris, BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, Auckland Philharmonia and London Philharmonic.
