Music of Spain: Julian Bream
Julian Bream (guitar)

[ Sony / RCA / 6 CD Box Set ]

Release Date: Tuesday 20 December 2016

This 6 CD boxset is devoted to recordings of Spanish guitar music by one of its finest exponents. "No one apart from his mentor Segovia has done more to enhance the standing of the guitar than Julian Bream," observed BBC Music Magazine. And Gramophone's John Duarte, perhaps the most authoritative critic of guitar performance, stated: "No living guitarist can 'sell' this music so persuasively as Bream, who starts from a base of affection and conviction; indeed, a comparison with recordings of these pieces by others provides a definition of 'style' to anyone in need of one."

"In short, a demonstration of unostentatious mastery by one of the great guitarists. Any lover of the instrument who doesn't already own one of the previous incarnations of this recital should hurry to acquire it now." (MusicWeb)
