Julian Bream Video Interview at The Gramphone Awards



Bream gets honoured at the Gramphone Awards for a Lifetime Achievement prize. Bream at 80 seems like a very chill guy these days. He talks about his schooling and youth. He mentions how music gave him an education in feeling, understanding the beauty of things and the poetry of things. What a guy!

  1. Wonderful! Julian Bream’s style is just so poetic, and one can recognize that is him and only him when any of his recordings come on the radio or anywhere else.
    Thank you for this brief and illuminating interview.

  2. Julian Bream is the greatest English classical guitarist ever born.
    What do you have to do to receive a knighthood? He surely deserves to be Sir Julian Bream
