Julian Arp. Cellist and sophisticate.

As a soloist and chamber musician, Julian Arp is renowned for his expansive repertoire. His musical exploration spans from the Baroque era to contemporary compositions, particularly emphasising New Music at its core.

His range has allowed him to premiere compositions by esteemed composers such as Violetta Dinescu, Sarah Nemtsov, Helena Winkelman, Sven-Ingo Koch, Samir Odeh-Tamimi, and Marcelo Nisinman.

In addition to his worldwide concert activity in halls such as the Philharmonie Berlin, Carnegie Hall New York, Wigmore Hall London and Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, teaching is just as much a part of his everyday artistic life. In 2013 he was appointed professor at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz.

Julian Arp exhibits a keen eye for form, structure, and fine nuances, both on stage and behind the lens.

Arp is captivated by visually striking objects. For seventeen years he and his camera have travelled together, continuously seeking out aesthetic phenomena. Seeking the natural world’s inherent surrealism, Arp’s poetic perception is just as integral to his work as the realism of light, materials, textures and colours. His work was showcased in Tiradentes, Brazil, in an exhibition entitled “32 Variationen über Pfade” in 2013. His distinctive style is strongly influenced by the visual arts and music.
