Safely in the month of May, we enter the season of Summer Festivals . Julian and his jazz Septet will be playing Mayfield Festival this coming Saturday with a programme of Benny Goodman numbers.

The following Saturday sees him join the Carducci Quartet for a performance of Brahms’ Clarinet Quintet recently recorded and released on Signum Records.

Other festival performances include a programme for clarinet, piano and cello with James Baillieu and Richard Harwood at Thaxted Festival & a performance of Schubert’s Octet at Cheltenham Music Festival.
