About the Artist
Julian Bream occupies a preeminent position in the world of guitar and is undoubtedly one of the finest lutenists of his generation. Born in London in 1933, he made his professional debut in 1947, and that same year met Segovia, whose in?fluence and encouragement was to have a profound effect on him.
Mr. Bream's special contribution to the literature is to extend the range of musical interest backward through discovered music for the lute and forward through recent music written for the guitar. Such composers as Benjamin Britten, William Walton, Hans Werner Henze, Richard Rodney Bennett, and Malcolm Arnold have written works especially for him, some of which he himself has commissioned. The literature has also been expanded by his many transcriptions of Romantic and Baroque music.
He tours almost every country in the world, spending three or four weeks in the United States each season. This is Mr. Bream's fifth visit to Ann Arbor--previous appearances were two in 1963, and one each in 1972 and 1973.
