CBC Radio 2's Tempo and CBC Music are collaborating to give away Sony Classical's Julian Bream: Complete RCA Album Collection. (includes 40 CDs and 2 DVDs). The box set comes with a 96 page hardcover book with an essay by Graham Wade, photos and full discographical notes.
Julian Bream turned 80 this past July. He's recognized as one of the greatest classical guitarists of the 20th century. Initially taught music by his jazz loving father, the young Bream had access to the Philharmonic Society of Guitar's extensive collection of rare music when his father became the librarian.
Bream was a child prodigy who gave his first guitar recital when he was 13. He soon began studying at the Royal College of Music and debuted at the iconic Wigmore Hall when he was only 18. From there, international success awaited him.
