The brother of Andrew Lloyd Webber and one of the world’s finest musicians will perform at the Lancaster Grand this Sunday night (March 29).

Julian Lloyd Webber will take the audience on an historical and musical journey as he recounts stories and anecdotes of touring, recording sessions, concerts and TV shows.

All will be linked with rare video footage of him playing and talking with many of the people involved in his amazing life such as Nigel Kennedy, Elton John, Katherine Jenkins, Tim Rice, Yehudi Menhuin, Joaquin Rodrigo, Cleo Laine, Stephane Grappelli and many others.

The backbone of the show and complimenting the chat and clips, he will be joined by his wife and fellow cellist Jiaxin Lloyd Webber and pianist Pam Chowhan to perform works such as Faure’s Elegy, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Music of the Night, Rachmaninov’s Cello Sonata as well as works by composers William Lloyd Webber, Philip Glass, Frank Bridge, and JS Bach.

Cellists are invited to bring along their cellos. Julian Lloyd Webber may play it for you on stage as the encore and you could get a mini masterclass with the man himself.

The show starts at 7.30pm

Tickets cost £20, available by calling 01524 64695.
