November 2021

This month sees two outings of Bach's exuberant Brandenburg Concerto no. 5; one with the Bristol Ensemble and the other with Florilegium. Other activities will see Julian performing a chamber concert with Florilegium at Imperial College, a duet concert with Emma Abbate at Dulwich Picture Gallery and a soiree with two singers from the National Opera Studio. He also looks forward to giving a conducting masterclass at Cambridge University and recording a disc of Purcell's songs before, hopefully, touring to Italy at the end of the month.
