Julian Joseph in Concert

Sunday, 9 October 2016 - 2:30pm

Hailed as one of the finest pianists to emerge from this side of the Atlantic, Julian Joseph has performed extensively for over two decades, firmly establishing himself as a towering figure in the contemporary jazz world. Equally admired for his electrifying piano playing and extensive compositions, he is also a respected bandleader, inspirational collaborator and an engaging broadcaster; in essence a true champion of music.

Drawing inspiration from the classical as well as the rock and pop worlds, Julian Joseph considers all influences essential to his music making, His own challenging and innovative works are deeply rooted in the jazz tradition and reveal his unique voice combined with those of his predecessors.

For the London Piano Festival’s closing concert, Julian will create a unique mixture of pieces to include a selection of his own compositions linked with many well-loved jazz standards by Gershwin, Ellington and Porter. All of these will be announced from the stage.

‘The London pianist Julian Joseph’s music unfolds as a dramatic narrative with each twist and subplot marked by a stab, riff or unexpected change of key. The foundations are solid; clear melodies and strong harmonic structures’ Financial Times, February 2015

Duration: 60–80 min, no interval
