Lulian Pusca (pronounced Julian Pooshka) is a young artist of ever-growing talent, known for his astonishing skills in playing the pan flute. His wide repertoire – which includes pieces that would normally be played on violin or flute – as well as his unique technique and manner of performing make Iulian stand out from the crowd. Iulian studied music in his native Moldova before pursuing an international performance career. He has toured across Europe and performed as soloist with orchestras including the Moldova National Philharmonic Symphonic Orchestra and RTÉ Concert Orchestra. His extensive repertoire includes classical, jazz, and Moldovan folk music. Iulian is the winner of the prestigious Freemasons Young Musician of the Year award in Dublin.
RTE ConTempo Quartet have been Ireland’s national television and radio broadcaster’s Quartet in Residence since 2014, and the Galway Ensemble in Residence since 2003.
