“Expect to revise any preconceived notions you have about classical music concerts.” (Huffington Post)
Julian is Artistic Director of Crossing Borders at Hunter College, NY and the Water Island Music Festival in the Virgin Islands. Founder of 16000children, he also devotes his time and talent to numerous non-profit organizations, performing and raising funds for charities all over the world.
“Julian builds a rapport with his listeners by regaling them with anecdotes about his life as a traveling musician. It’s a formula that works.” (TimeOut Singapore)
Born and educated in Italy, Julian has degrees from the Moscow State Conservatory and the Peabody Conservatory, and a Doctorate in music from the University of Maryland. He recently released his eighth album “Roll Over Beethoven” featuring mostly original music.
