For the celebration of Anthony Guilbert’s works at the Queen Elisabeth Hall, Julien performed the recorder concerto with the Endymion Ensemble and was described by The Independent as a ‘remarkable performers and a fantastic ambassador of recorder contemporary music’.
In order to develop new repertoire and to explore the limits of recorder technique, Julien is constantly collaborating with composers from various background, including Nicolas Verin, Ryshard Osada, Michal Talma-Sutt, Andy Spicer and Ola Gryka. With the composer Nicolas Verin, Julien created Duo Alchemia to explore and research recorder acoustic possibilities linked with electronics.
