Spend An Evening With Julian Lloyd Webber...
In his new presentation, Julian Lloyd Webber will take the audience on an historical and musical journey in which he will give unique insight into his life as one of the world's finest musicians and also as a member of arguably the most influential musical dynasty of modern times.
Known as one of the greatest cello players in the world, Julian won a Brit award for Elgar’s Cello Concerto, an interpretation that was often thought to be the best ever. Sadly his performing career was cut short last year by a devastating neck injury that has left him unable to play full concerts.
Julian will recount stories and anecdotes of touring, recording sessions, concerts, TV shows and the like, all of which will be linked with rare video footage of him playing and talking with many of the people involved in his amazing life, such as Nigel Kennedy, Elton John, Katherine Jenkins, Tim Rice, Yehudi Menhuin, Cleo Laine, Stephane Grappelli and many others.
To complement the chat and clips, he will be joined by his wife and fellow cellist Jiaxin Lloyd Webber and pianist Pam Chowhan to perform works such as Faure's Elegy, Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Music of the Night, Rachmaninov's Cello Sonata as well as works by composers William Lloyd Webber, Philip Glass, Frank Bridge, and JS Bach.
For any cellist out there - bring along your cello and there’s the chance of Julian Lloyd Webber playing it on stage as the encore, plus you can get a mini master-class with the man himself!
