In October 2015, at the age of sixteen, Julian Trevelyan won
the prestigious Long-Thibaud international piano competition in Paris. He has
subsequently appeared on France 3 TV in Les Victoires, the annual classical
music awards ceremony, where he performed the first movement of Schumann’s
piano concerto. He was a finalist in the piano category of the BBC Young
Musician competition in 2014 and features again in 2016.

Following
his success in Paris, Julian now has concerts throughout France, as well as
Russia, America, and Switzerland. In October, he will be performing Bartók’s
3rd Piano Concerto in the Palace of Arts in Budapest, Hungary.

The
programme for Julian’s recital starts with Chopin’s dramatic second sonata,
with its famous Funeral March. This is followed by Debussy’s impressionistic
Images include the shimmering Reflets dans l’eau (reflections in the water) and
two impromptus by Schubert. In the second half, Julian plays a work inspired by
and evocative of the Tango, written by one of France’s leading contemporary
composers, and finishes with Schumann’s Humoreske, an elusive and
unclassifiable work of pianistic imagination.

Julian
was born and lives in St Albans. He is delighted to be returning to Bedford,
having performed a number of times at the popular Tuesday lunchtime series in
St Paul’s Church, and also at Bedford School.
