Praised for his “wide palette of colors” and “brilliant technique,” Julian Rose is currently a William R. Kenan Performing Arts Fellow at the Lincoln Center Institute in New York City, where he maintains an active career performing, teaching, and freelancing.
Julian has performed across North America and in Europe as soloist and also with ensembles ranging from the Western Piedmont Symphony Orchestra, “The Tidewater Winds” Wind Ensemble, and the Master Musicians Chamber Orchestra, where he served as principal flute from 2009 to 2010. Recently, he was the first prize winner at the Second Annual Rosen-Schaffel Young Artist Competition (2012), the Flute Society of Kentucky Young Artist Competition (2012), the Richmond Flute Festival Young Artist Competition (2011), and was a quarter-finalist in the 2012 National Flute Association Young Artist Competitions.
Julian is an active recitalist, recording artist, and teacher, and is an avid proponent of bringing a “new music” to broader audiences, from newly published works to original transcriptions. Julian’s intense interest in the violin’s repertory has prompted him to transcribe, and perform on flute, such notable works as J. S. Bach’s Three Sonatas and Three Partitas for solo violin, the 24 Caprices by Niccolò Paganini, and Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto in D Major, among others.
Julian completed his Master of Music (2012) at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts with Dr. Tadeu Coelho, and his Bachelor of Music (2008) Suma Cum Laude at Virginia Commonwealth University with Mrs. Francile Bilyeu. Mr. Rose also spent a year at the prestigious Université de Paris IV: La Sorbonne in Paris, France, where he undertook an intensive study in twentieth-century French music with the legendary Pierre-Yves Artaud, Professor at the Paris Conservatory.
