    Julian Bream: July 14th - 20th

    Guitarist/lutenist Julian Bream is 81 this week. In 2002 he retired after a 55 year  career and a love affair with the guitar that began at the age of 9 on hearing Django Reinhardt. We shine the spotlight on his wide-ranging and varied catalogue; from Elizabethan to Brazilian; Baroque to Spanish; Classical to Contemporary – solo, duo and chamber settings.
