Julian’s new album, named Classic FM’s Album of the Week, is available for purchase today, 15th September 2014. The release features the Mozart and Nielsen Clarinet Concertos recorded live with the Royal Northern Sinfonia at The Sage, Gateshead. The album also includes two Mozart arias that Julian arranged himself for clarinet.
“To record the Mozart live was a fantastic experience. There is a completely different feeling on live recording as compared to in the studio. When you are live, there is excitement and adrenaline.” – Julian Bliss
“All the works collected here showcase the attractive qualities of Bliss’s playing, rich and fruity in the showier passages, effortless in the demanding runs made by Nielsen in particular and, at the sublime moments, appropriately mellifluous and sonorous.” – Classic FM Online
