5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully delicate playing by Bream 10 Nov 2009
By Scriabinmahler TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I prefer Bream to John Williams' immaculate playing with almost mechanic precision. In this Baroque repertoire too, Bream proves to be a superior musician. The subtle intonation and the way he breathes life into the instrument is simply magical. The sound quality is warm and realistic and the occasional background hiss does not bother me very much in the presence of such captivating musicianship and artistry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Performance 17 Feb 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album on LP in 1976 and was so impressed that I learned the Bach Prelude and Fugue (tracks 3 and 4) and played them for years. Some complain about hiss on this album (it was recorded in the mid-sixties), but I think this might be the best classical solo album I have ever heard. Particularly impressive are tracks 1-5 by Sanz, Bach and Sor. This is an album that I know you will listen to over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Peerless! 3 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD
Utterly superb throughout. Having bought most of these works on vinyl first and seeing Bream play them at recitals many times over the years; I have to say the performances here represent the pinnacle of guitar musicianship.

Without doubt the finest piece here is Bach's Fugue in A minor (transcribed from G minor). Bream's performance of it is powerful, precise, articulate AND passionate. It really does create a sense of wonder of Bach's towering genius and the 'world' he creates in pieces such as this. Sorry to be dogmatic about it but there is simply no finer interpretation of this work extant.

I have played and taught Classical/Spanish guitar for over 3 decades and if you have never listened to Bream, you are denying yourself access to most of the best guitar performances ever made. While there may be better technicians; there is, as yet, no finer musician in the Classical/Spanish guitar world than Bream.

It is true that some of the recordings are early but they are nonetheless invaluable - studio and electronics 'cork-sniffers' opinions are unimportant here.

Are the original recordings of Toscanini, Bruno Walter or Agustin Barrios worthless because the latest technology was not available to record them? Of course not.

If you are serious about Classical guitar and the baroque - especially Bach (there really was only ONE Bach!) - these performances are essential. Seek out also 'Julian Bream plays Bach' where Bream plays Bach's lute suite 2 (a magnificent suite with a vast fugue) plus other pieces.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite album 28 Jan 2013
By David
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
of all time. Well for a while anyway.
Julian Bream plays all these pieces with brilliance. He might look like he's about to try and sell you some good value home insurance but he plays the guitar with unparalleled emotional depth.
