The concert features Crusell’s Clarinet Concerto No. 2 in F Minor and a young soloist Julian Bliss aged 9. He started playing the clarinet at the age of four. By the age of eight he had achieved a distinction at Associated Board Grade VIII and recently gained his advanced certificate with a score of 96%. He has twice had the honour of performing for royalty – at a recital at Buckingham Palace for H.R.H. The Duke of Edinburgh and before H.R.H. The Prince of Wales when he opened the Purcell School at its new site in Bushey.
Julian has recently returned from a tour of the U.S.A. where he played at the Julliard School of Music. His teachers have included David Johnston and Michael Collins and he is currently a pupil of Paul Harris. Julian attends the Purcell School, Bushey and the Junior department of the Royal College of Music.
