The Art of Julian Bream

This is the first book to present a detailed account of the musical achievements of Julian
Bream. In a wide-ranging celebration of his artistry the book offers essential perspectives
on vital elements of twentieth century guitar history and reveals how Julian Bream
succeeded in establishing the instrument as a uniquely expressive force on the
contemporary scene. As well as his phenomenal success in inspiring composers such as
Britten, Tippett, Walton, Arnold, Berkeley, Henze, Brouwer, Takemitsu, etc., to write for
the guitar, Bream is also renowned as the twentieth century's greatest lutenist and a
passionate advocate of Elizabethan music.
