We are delighted to announce that Julian Lloyd Webber will be delivering the introductory talk for our concert by the Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra on Sunday 13th October in Chipping Campden.

Julian is a Patron for the Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra and the Purcell School of Music, where our guest Cellist for Elgar’s Cello Concerto Ella Harrison is currently a student.

One of the leading musicians of our time, Julian has played with the world’s greatest orchestras in the world’s most famous concert halls and recorded with musical legends including Yehudi Menuhin, Stephane Grappelli, Cleo Laine and Elton John.

His recording of Elgar’s Cello Concerto won the Brit-Award for Best British Classical Recording and his album Variations, composed by Julian’s brother Andrew Lloyd Webber, won a gold disc within five weeks of release.

Julian has also inspired more than fifty new works for cello from composers as varied as Malcolm Arnold, Joaquín Rodrigo, Andrew Lloyd Webber, James MacMillan, Philip Glass and Eric Whitacre.

Julian was the only classical musician chosen to play at the closing ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games and he was the London Underground’s first official busker. As the founder of the British Government’s In Harmony music programme Julian continues to promote personal and community development in some of England’s most deprived areas.
