Notes & Reviews:
A 6-CD box set 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. 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."
