Oh my goodness. Another 'GREAT' bites he dust. Savor every moment y'all. Life is finite indeed.

RIP
Loved his 'mid-century' modernist stuff, Britten and Werner-Henze. Saw him in Town Hall NYC in the 80s

:deth:yingyang:deth: Sad to hear of his passing away, R.I.P. Julian Bream. Some very interesting stories out there told by acquaintances of this lively spirit and iconic musician/ human being.

I was lucky to see Julian Bream in my teens.Not sure how much I could absorb at that time. So many amazing tones coming out of an old nylon string. A modern and different take on what was possible with the instrument. Saw Andre Segovia a year before...or after..Both amazing but so opposite in their style

A giant and an icon. Self starter, self taught.

An innovator and taste maker.

Very sad news.

Loved his John Dowland CD, and the modern stuff and the spanish stuff. Saw him live in Sydney in 80's. Great musician.
