An English graduate of Oxford University, Julian Milford subsequently studied piano and piano accompaniment at the Curtis Institute and the Guildhall. He works as an accompanist and chamber musician with some of Britain’s finest instrumentalists and singers, performing at major chamber music venues across Britain and Europe. In addition to his concerts with Emily Pailthorpe and the London Conchord Ensemble, recent appearances have included recitals with baritones Sir Thomas Allen and Christopher Maltman, mezzo-soprano Sarah Connolly, and cellist Han-Na Chang in venues including the Frick Collection in New York, the Philharmonie in Cologne and the Herkulessaal in Munich. In the UK he has performed at the Wigmore Hall, St John’s, Smith Square, the Queen Elizabeth Hall and the Purcell Room, among others, as well as at the City of London and Cheltenham festivals. He has recorded extensively for major independent recording labels, and his debut solo recording comprising works by William Alwyn on Chandos was described as ‘impeccably stylish’ by BBC Music magazine.
