Julian Bliss Wind Soloists
Partita in B♭ major Op.78 (17’)
Serenade No.11 in E♭ major K.375 (25’)
Symphony No.7 in A major Op.92 (42’)
Tonight the exceptional clarinettist Julian Bliss gives his festival debut with his new ensemble, which comprises some of the UK’s most acclaimed wind players. Julian is equally at home as a concerto soloist, a chamber musician, or playing jazz. His ensemble will play the great Mozart serenade in the revised version for 2 clarinets, 2 Oboes, 2 Horns, & 2 Bassoons, and the electrifying arrangement of Beethoven’s 7th symphony which adds a Contrabassoon into the mix. Their concert opens with one of the Partitas by Krommer, a prolific Czech composer best known these days for his compositions for wind instruments.
“it isn’t just [Julian Bliss’s] technique, though that is astonishing enough. It’s the wit, poise and vivacity in his playing. In short, it is the pure intuition leading him straight to the heart of what he plays” The Times
