Thank you so much for playing at my Celebration Dinner last night! The sound of your guitar, and the music chosen, created a wonderful ambience in the Great Hall, which was commented upon by many of the guests. I am so pleased that you were able to join us; it made the occasion even more special for me and I shall always remember it.

Beginning with a fairly dramatic, yet restrained, opening section, which he performed with the level of confidence associated with a player of greater maturity, Julian then launched into what could be described as a veritable musical tour de force.
