Julian Lampert

Pedagogical vision

Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Da Vinci, Einstein—they all were once students in a classroom. We never know who, in a classroom full of students, may someday change the world. This is why it is our duty as teachers to provide the best possible conditions for a student to flourish.

Julian Lampert’s composition career began with Ludmila Belousova & Oleg Protopopov, the gold-medalist Olympic Figure-Skating legends; Julian wrote music for their performance tours and documentary films between 1998—2008.
He was among the personalities featured in the book “Empowering Outperformance”—written by the late Belgian filmmaker, author, and arctic explorer Dixie Dansercoer.

The 2023-2024 concert season includes Julian’s Belgian debut as organist, at the International Festival of Organ Music in Courtrai (Kortrijk) and a recital spanning 4 centuries of music on piano and organ at the Center for Arts & Culture of Koekelare.
Julian is among the organists at the Church of Notre Dame de Blankedelle, Brussels.

2017 saw the world premiere of Julian’s Quintet for Flute and String Quartet, given by the Borromeo String Quartet with flutist Jelle Atema and the Cape Cod International Festival. This quintet featured for the first time in concert performance two prehistoric flutes discovered by Prof. Ivan Turk in Slovenia, and reconstructed from their original materials by Mr. Atema—an interdisciplinary project featured at the New York Museum of Natural History, NPR, and WGBH Radio networks.

Julian is a member of the Belgian Screen Composers Guild. In 2016, Julian’s soundtrack to the short-film comedy “Goddesses in The Loo” (New York—directed by Jenilyn Rodriguez) was recorded at Galaxy Studios of Belgium.

Since 2017, Julian is engaged by the Parent’s Association of the European School IV in Brussels (l’APEEE IV Bruxelles) as teacher of piano and composition. It was here where Julian developed a program of composing music individually suited to each student’s strengths and abilities.

Born in Russia with Polish and French origins, Julian Lampert’s family immigrated to the United States and settled in Boston where he was raised and educated.
Julian’s principal teacher of piano and harmony was his mother, Prof. Elena Lampert—a disciple of Teodore Gutman, Valentina Kholopova, and Dorothy Taubman. Julian also studied with Eliza Hansen and Dorothy Taubman.
At Amherst College (Massachusetts), Julian worked with Pulitzer-prize winning composer Lewis Spratlan.

At 13, Julian appeared with conductor Roman Totenberg, and later with Victor Rosenbaum 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 also received guidance from pianists Shura Cherkassky and Valery Afanassiev. Under Mr. Probst’s auspices, Julian performed extensively throughout the United States, Western & Eastern Europe.
