Henry develops a program for Julian's first "trial" recital at Cheltenham. The recital was to take place in January 1946. Due to Dr. Perrot's opposition and isistence that Julian was not ready, the plans for the recital were cancelled.

While the audience applauded for more, Julian bowed and left the stage after the second encore. Julian signs autographs for the first time. There may not have been a "trophy" involved for Julian but the event represented a high honour for the performer. Julian was 13 years old

November 30, 1946
Henry developed a program in early November for Julian to perform within a months time - the second attempt to have Julian's first "trial" recital at Cheltenham Art Gallery.  The recital was initially suppose to take place in December  and was then moved forward to November 30, 1946.  Within the span of weeks the recital was moved to December 7, 1946 and the program was changed again due to the lack of diversity of the initial program. This is the initial program before the changes. Again, given that these pieces were part of the program must indicate that young Julian was already playing them fairly well. Julian was 13 years old.

This section is dedicated to showing the advance techique Julian was showing at a very young age. These pieces are all in the technically high intermediate to advanced area of performance. Julian continued to perform many of these pieces throughout his carrer.  Sadly, their is no known video footage of Julian playing as a child. There is likely some audio footage in the vaults of the BBC but they have yet to surface.
