Paul Galbraith plays Nocturnal by Britten

An excellent recording and performance of one of the seminal works of the 20th century. Paul Galbraith – Nocturnal aft J Dowland Op. 70 Britten. FYI, the piece composed in 1963 by English composer Benjamin Britten was written for guitarist Julian Bream. It is a strange set of variations in reverse, that is, the theme only appears at the very end.
