Notes & Reviews:

The Clarinet Concertos of Mozart and Nielsen stand as the two greatest such works in the repertoire for the instrument, twin examples of what can be achieved by composers who have been truly inspired to write for the clarinet, using its uniquely expressive qualities to produce enduring and comprehensively masterly compositions. One of the most talented young musicians of our day, Julian Bliss has already appeared as soloist with orchestras worldwide and in recital at concert halls in the UK, France, Israel, Germany and America.

BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2014
Bliss responds to the work's mercurial switches of mood with a wide range of colour and articulation, and meets its considerable technical challenges with seemingly offhand virtuosity. He is well matched by the seasoned Mario Venzago and the players of the Royal Northern Sinfonia.

International Record Review, January 2015
Nielsen's elaborate figuration seems to hold no fears for Bliss, whose articulation is as nimble as his fingers... Phrasing is fresh from both soloist and orchestra throughout.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
The concert is well played. Bliss fuses his resonant timbre with supple phrasing, and his breathtaking technique and articulation make the Mozart sparkle. His Nielsen appears so easy. The arias are enjoyable.
