On Friday 17th April, Julian joined conductor David Brophy and the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra to perform the beautiful Nielsen Clarinet Concerto. Long considered one of the most difficult concertos, it requires technical prowess from both orchestra and soloist alike. On the surface a busy, fast-paced concerto, but listen to what is happening underneath, it is full of amazing textures and harmonies.

The performance was broadcast live by RTÉ Lyric as part of the The Lyric Concert with Paul Herriott from Dublin’s National Concert Hall. Listen again on their website or watch the performance below.
