Guitar for Relaxation collects virtuoso guitarist Julian Bream's renditions of soothing classical guitar pieces by Bach, Henze, Martin, Ravel, Villa-Lobos, and others. Aguado's "Adadio, Op. 2 No. 1," Mozart's "Larghetto," Tarrega's "Lagrima (Prelude)," and Sanz's "Pavanas" are some of the highlights of this gentle but engaging album.
Proclaimed by many students of classical music as the premier guitar and lute virtuoso of the 20th century, Julian Bream was born in London in 1933. After studying at the Royal College of Music, he made his public debut in 1950, quickly winning fame for his technique and mastery of a wide range of musical styles. In 1960, he founded the Julian Bream Consort, an ensemble of original instrument virtuosi which enjoyed astounding success in their chosen oeuvre, greatly revitalizing interest in the music of the Elizabethan era. Named an Officer of the Order of the British Empire in 1964, Bream was then named a Commander of the Order of the British Empire two decades later. ~ Jason Ankeny.
