Julian Bliss- Clarinet Firmly established on the international concert scene Julian Bliss has already appeared as soloist with a number of important orchestras including the London Philharmonic, BBC Symphony, Royal Philharmonic, Orchestre National de France, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Seattle Symphony, BBC Philharmonic, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, NHK Symphony, Munich Chamber, Gulbenkian Orchestra, Malaysian Philharmonic, Swedish Radio Symphony and the Bergen Philharmonic.
In recital Julian has appeared at such prestigious venues as the Wigmore Hall, Cadogan Hall, the Louvre in Paris, Montpellier Festival, Jerusalem Music Festival, Bad Kissingen, Rheingau and Mecklenburg Festivals, where he was awarded the audience prize and is now a regular guest. His debut recital at the Lincoln Center in New York was a great success.
As a prolific chamber musician, Julian has collaborated with artists such as Joshua Bell, Steven Isserlis, Misha Maisky, Steven Kovacevich, Elena Bashkirova, Julian Rachlin, Simon Trpceski and Helen Grimaud.
This season saw the launch of ‘Julian Bliss and the King of Swing – the Benny Goodman Legacy’; a project focusing on the musical life and times of the legendary clarinetist Benny Goodman. Julian formed his group of seven musicians at the beginning of the year and has already taken the project to festivals in the UK and Europe including the Concertgebouw and the Newbury and Ryedale Festivals. The group has recently recorded the programme which will be released in April 2012.
This season also saw Julian collaborate with the Grammy award winning Soprano Hila Plitmann. Their first CD is an album exploring Hebrew and Jewish music with pianist Christopher Glynn. Julian’s recordings for EMI have been greeted with critical acclaim and of his record with Sabine Meyer as recording partner Gramophone magazine said “Spohr Clarinet Concerto no.2 in C minor, colourfully played by Julian Bliss, is full of instrumental invention, pitting the clarinet against some highly original effects and so requiring much care in balance as well as finger dexterity.”
Julian has appeared on International television on numerous occasions; at the Queen’s 80th Birthday at the BBC Proms in front of a live audience and a television audience around the world in forty countries, in a three-part documentary about his life for Channel 4 entitled ‘Gifted’, and he was among the distinguished artists invited to perform at the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Celebrations at Buckingham Palace on 1 June 2002.
Since 2007 Julian has enjoyed a collaboration with the musical instrument manufacturer Conn-Selmer. In partnership with Leblanc, Julian designed the BLISS range of clarinets which was launched worldwide in 2008. For more information about Julian and the BLISS clarinets visit

On the 18th and 19th following the masterclass at Carnegie Mellon University, Julian Bliss be visiting local middle and high schools to conduct masterclasses and demonstrations. Appearances will be to Hampton, Franklin Regional, Upper St. Clair, Mount Lebanon, and South Fayette school districts.
