Dreams and Fancies

Dreams and Fancies album cover
Format: CD & Digital download
Label: Delphian Records
Release date: July 2017
Catalogue no: DCD34193

Barely half a century ago, the guitar was such a rarity in the concert hall that even an outstanding player like Julian Bream was remarkable as a pioneer as much as for his exceptional technique and musicality. Today, by contrast, the field is richly populated - thanks not only to Bream’s own inspiring example to younger players but also to the vastly increased repertoire, so much of which he also instigated.

Yet even in this new heyday for the instrument, Sean Shibe - whose full album debut here nests among four of those Bream-commissioned works a clutch of Dowland pieces from a previous Elizabethan Golden Age - stands out as a truly uncommon talent. ‘I want to hear his interpretation of Britten’s Nocturnal over and over,’ wrote David Nice in an awed recent concert review. ‘This, for me, is the definitive performance.’ [synopsis by Delphian]

Performed by Sean Shibe (guitar)

The Young Julian Bream

The Young Julian Bream album cover
Format: CD & Digital download
Label: Dynamic
Release date: February 2011
Catalogue no: IDI6608

This disc features one of the greatest and distinguished contemporary classical guitarists: Julian Bream. It seems extraordinary that the discography of his youth has been only partially re-mastered on CD. In fact, this is true to such a point that many of his very famous performances are still difficult to find today, such as the Lennox Berkeley Sonatina recorded in 1960. The disc also features Bach's fantastic 'Ciaccona' recorded in 1956, when Bream was just 21 years old, together with a selection of other works recorded in 1960, that are currently very difficult to find. Among them is the famous transcription of Ravel's 'Pavane pour une infante défunte'. (Synopsis by Dynamic Records)

Performed by Julian Bream (guitar)

The Lion In the Lute: British Guitar Music

The Lion In the Lute: British Guitar Music album cover
Format: CD & Digital download
Label: BIS
Release date: January 1999
Catalogue no: CD-926

Anders Miolin’s recording has a quite mellow but clear and resonant sound. Miolin’s version is faithfully detailed, and like Garrobé, he adopts the ‘non troppo’ approach to the Rondo. Unusually, the guitar used is a ten-stringed instrument. The programme is substantial, and all British; featuring Walton, Rawsthorne, Berkeley, Tippett and Britten.
