Julian Lloyd Webber, one of the world’s finest and most influential classical musicians has announced a special series of concerts for 2015 UK. For the first time, Julian will take his audience on a historical and musical journey by presenting a unique insight into his extraordinary life, with music performed by himself, his wife and fellow cellist Jiaxin Lloyd Webber, together with pianist Pam Chowhan.
As a member of arguably the most influential musical dynasty of modern times, Julian Lloyd Webber will recount stories and anecdotes of touring, recording sessions, concerts and TV shows to link with a new presentation of rare video footage of him talking and performing with the likes of Nigel Kennedy, Elton John, Katherine Jenkins, Tim Rice, Yehudi Menhuin, Joaquin Rodrigo, Cleo Laine, Stephane Grappelli and many others.
The show will see works performed from Faure’s Elegy, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Music of the Night, Rachmaninov’s Cello Sonata through to composers William Lloyd Webber, Frank Bridge, JS Bach and Philip Glass.
For this special performance, Julian is inviting fellow cellists to bring along their own cello to perform onstage with the maestro himself. This will give an audience member a once in lifetime opportunity to have a mini masterclass with one of the most successful British musicians of the last 50 years.
Julian Lloyd Webber said “I look forward to sharing some incredible videos and stories with you! It will be a fun evening suitable for all families and children.”Go Back
