Clarinetist Julian Milkis is the only remaining student of the clarinet icon Benny Goodman and has garnered an international stature as a dazzling soloist, chamber musician, recitalist and jazz clarinetist. His performances include New York’s Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, Salle Pleyel and Salle Gaveau in Paris, Great Halls of the Moscow Conservatory and the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, Roy Thomson Hall and Weston Recital Hall in Toronto, and the National Concert Hall in Taipei, Taiwan. His numerous solo appearances include orchestras in Canada (Toronto Symphony, CBC Vancouver Orchestra, Edmonton Symphony), Russia (State Symphony Orchestra of Russia, St.Petersburg Philharmonic, Moscow State Symphony Orchestra, Novosibirsk Philharmonic, Hermitage Chamber Orchestra, Divertissment Chamber Orchestra), and Europe (Hamburg Mozarteum, L’Orchestre Nationale de Lyon, L’Orchestre Symphonique Francaise). Milkis’s performances have been broadcast on radio and television throughout the US, Canada, Europe and Asia. He is a leading voice for his instrument in the field of jazz. One of Julian’s recent collaborations was with Dick Hyman, who wrote and dedicated his Ragtime Concerto to Julian. A Canadian citizen, and graduate of The Juilliard School and the Manhattan School of Music, he performs exclusively on Yamaha clarinets, and plays on RICO reeds.
