Biography


Born in Russia with Polish and French origins, Julian Lampert immigrated as a child with his family to the United States and settled in Boston in the 1990's where he was raised and educated.
He studied piano and harmony with his mother, Prof. Elena Lampert. 

As Composer:

2017 saw the world premiere of Julian's Quintet for Flute and String Quartet, given by the Borromeo String Quartet with flutist Jelle Atema. This quintet also featured for the first time in concert performance a series of prehistoric flutes reconstructed from original materials by Mr. Atema. 

In 2016, Julian recorded his soundtrack to "Goddesses in The Loo" (directed by Jenilyn Rodriguez; due for release in 2018) in Galaxy Film Studios of Belgium.

His composition career began with Ludmila & Oleg Protopopov, the gold-medalist Olympic Figure-Skating legends; Julian composed extensively for their performance tours.

Julian's skills as composer for Film/Television/Radio spans nearly four centuries of musical styles—from Renaissance/Baroque/Classical/Romantic genres, to the most modern developments within jazz, latin, and world music. He has scored three documentary films. 

After his debut in Pittsburgh in 1999, Julian met Fred Rogers—creator of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. During their subsequent friendship, Mr. Rogers inspired Julian to write music for children. Much of this music was often featured in the Music & Art workshops conducted by his mother, who founded the Lampert Center for Arts & Culture in Boston and New York.

Currently, Julian is writing a flute concerto and a cycle of lieder. 

As Performer:

At 13, Julian gave his orchestral debut as soloist with conductor Roman Totenberg, and later with Victor Rosenbaum, both in Cambridge Massachusetts. This brought him to the attention of Richard Probst—former Director of Concerts & Artists at Steinway and Vice President of Harold Shaw Concerts.  Julian received guidance from Shura Cherkassky, Dorothy Taubman, Rudolf Serkin and Eliza Hansen who selected him for a Master-Course in Germany. Under Mr. Probst's auspices, Julian performed extensively throughout the United States, Western & Eastern Europe.
