THE Dunamaise Arts Centre this weekend will be hosting one of the world’s most renowned musicians – Julian Lloyd Webber – on Sunday February 3 at 8pm.
Returning to Ireland after his hugely successful visits last year and his appearance in the closing ceremony of the London Olympics, the legendary cellist Julian Lloyd Webber will perform favourite classics by Bach, Faure, Saint-Saens and Debussy, as well as work by his brother Andrew Lloyd Webber and his father William at the Dunamaise.
Julian will also reminisce on his collaborations with musicians as diverse as Yehudi Menuhin, Cleo Laine, Stephan Grapelli, as well as Elton John and, of course, his brother Andrew. Piano accompanist on the night will be Pam Chowman.
Described by Strad magazine as ‘the doyen of British cellists’ and widely regarded as one the finest musicians of his generation, Julian Lloyd Webber enjoys one of the most creative and successful careers in classical music today.
He has premiered more than fifty works for cello and he has inspired new compositions from composers as diverse as Joaquin Rodrigo and Malcolm Arnold to Philip Glass, James MacMillan and – most recently - Eric Whitacre. Julian Lloyd Webber’s many recordings have received worldwide acclaim.
Uniquely, Julian will invite the audience at the Dunamaise to ask him questions in the second half of the evening. A must for lovers of all music.
