Julian Bliss (UK) Solo clarinet*

It isn’t just his technique, though that is astonishing enough. It’s the wit, poise and vivacity in his playing. In short, it is the pure intuition leading him straight to the heart of what he plays. The Times UK

What to expect

Find yourself resting somewhere between a relaxed, smoky, honky tonk jazz piano bar and the ethereal American prairies that much of Copland’s music evokes in his Clarinet Concerto – the centrepiece of this concert. Commissioned by the “King of Swing”, legendary jazz clarinettist Benny Goodman, the work is infused with the spirit of Brazilian folk music that Copland heard when he was travelling in Latin America while writing it. The internationally acclaimed UK clarinet soloist Julian Bliss joins Camerata for this inspired work. Opening the concert is Beethoven’s Serioso Quartet – punchy yet packed with the excitement and drama that has come to be associated with this composer. Paquito’s sublime tango-flavoured work will be followed by Camerata’s passionate string sound in Mahler’s exquisite Adagietto – heart-wrenching, dramatic and tender all in one.
