About Dr. Julian Wachner:
Grammy-nominated conductor Julian Wachner is one of North America’s most exciting and versatile musicians, sought after as conductor, composer, and keyboard artist.
Julian is also a certified Practitioner of The Feldenkrais Method.
The Feldenkrais method is a form of somatic education — a category which includes such disparate forms as Yoga and the Alexander Technique — that aims to improve movement repertoire and the way in which the mind and body work together, in order to reduce pain or limitations in movement, and promote general well-being.
Julian began his Feldenkrais training in order to maximize his own potential as a musician. He received his diploma as a certified Practitioner following a four year course of study in the south of France, studying principally under Educational Director Yvan Joly. He has taught the Feldenkrais Method at the Tanglewood Music Center, Glimmerglass Opera Young Artists Program, McGill University, Yale University, and at Boston University, and maintains a private practice in New York City.
As Director of Music at New York’s historic Trinity Church Wall Street, Julian oversees an annual season of hundreds of events, with duties including conducting Trinity’s flagship weekly series, Bach at One, which canvasses the entire choral-orchestral output of J. S. Bach, and leading Compline by Candlelight, Trinity’s innovative and fully improvised variation on this ancient monastic ritual. He also curates the long standing and cherished Concerts at One series, presenting an eclectic program of weekly concerts for Lower Manhattan and beyond through its HD live and on-demand webcasting. Besides serving as Principal Conductor of Trinity’s resident contemporary music orchestra NOVUS NY, The Trinity Baroque Orchestra, and The Choir of Trinity Wall Street, Wachner is also Music Director of the Grammy Award-winning Washington Chorus, with whom he won ASCAP’s Alice Parker award for adventurous programming and Chorus America’s Margaret Hilles Award for Choral Excellence.
Wachner has an extensive catalogue of original compositions that have been variously described as “jazzy, energetic, and ingenious” (Boston Globe), having “splendor, dignity, outstanding tone combinations, [and] sophisticated chromatic exploration…” (La Scena Musicale), and being “a compendium of surprises” (Washington Post). The New York Times has characterized his music as “bold and atmospheric,” demonstrating “an imaginative flair for allusive text setting,” and has praised him for “the silken complexities of his harmonies.” The American Record Guide noted that “Wachner is both an unapologetic modernist and an open-minded eclectic – his music has something to say.”
Wachner also enjoys an active schedule as a guest conductor. Orchestral engagements have included performances with the Philadelphia Orchestra; Montreal, Pacific, Calgary, and Pittsburgh Symphonies; New York Philharmonic; Seraphic Fire; National Arts Centre Orchestra; Philharmonia Baroque; Hong Kong Philharmonic; Bang on a Can All-Stars; and Apollo’s Fire. He has also conducted the San Francisco Opera, Glimmerglass Opera, Hawaii Opera Theater, Juilliard Opera Theater, and New York City Opera, as well as for Carnegie Hall Presents, National Sawdust, and the Lincoln Center Festival.
With multiple Grammy nominations to his credit, Wachner has recorded on the Chandos, Naxos, Atma Classique, Erato, Cantaloupe Music, Arsis, Dorian, Acis, and Musica Omnia labels. He is published exclusively by E.C. Schirmer and represented worldwide by Opus 3 Artists.
