Notes & Reviews:

Sony Classical celebrates the artist's 80th birthday with The Essential Julian Bream. Throughout his long career, the charismatic British guitarist and lutenist's virtuosic playing has enraptured audiences, inspired composers and won him four Grammy Awards®. This special 2-CD collection reflects the vast variety of music that Bream has championed, ranging from such popular Spanish classics as Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez and Tarrega's Recuerdos de la Alhambra, to the Elizabethan gems that Bream himself brought back to life. The Essential Julian Bream includes the artist's own editions and arrangements of works by Albéniz, Boccherini, Falla, Granados, Handel, Paganini and Vivaldi as well as his famous collaborations with fellow artists, tenor Robert Tear and guitarist John Williams.

BBC Music Magazine, Christmas Issue 2013
Bream's sampler shows his passionate best. The (complete) Aranjuez Concerto is unsurpassed; Falla's Miller's Dance blazes; 'impossible' Rodrigo dazzles.
