‘sophisticated, precise fearlessness’ – Scmopera on Julien Van Mellaerts

AS PART OF THIS YEAR’S dual language focus, marking Happy Days’ presentation of its Paris Beckett festival in 2016 and Beckett’s own years in Paris, this wonderful concert of French songs is performed by the exciting young baritone Julien Van Mellaerts.

Julien Van Mellaerts is one of the leading baritones of his generation. He only graduated from the Royal College of Music last year, but has already received numerous accolades, including winning the 2017 Wigmore Hall/Kohn Foundation International Song Competition and most recently he won the Maureen Forrester Second Prize and the German Lied Award at the 2018 Concours musical international de Montréal.
