“Cloudburst” musters the masterful forces of the ensemble using evocative vocal effects that extend the normal understanding of choral music

"The knock-out audience grabber, the shortest piece on the program, honored water in the form of a rainstorm on thirsty ground. Eric Whitacre’s “Cloudburst” musters the masterful forces of the ensemble using evocative vocal effects that extend the normal understanding of choral music. Percussionist Kevin Neuhoff produced rippling thunder sounds, and the choristers’ clicking fingers made an uncanny resemblance to rainfall. This dazzling contemporary work

Le Temps Review: Bellerive Festival

Le Temps reviews Julian's performance of Schumann and Milhaud as part of Bellerive Festival last week complimenting the velveteen sounds of his clarinet. "Julian Bliss, que l’on se souvient avoir entendu quand il avait 14 ou 15 ans au Verbier Festival, est un clarinettiste accompli.
