From the library of Julian Bream: an exhibition of his scores and manuscripts

Apr - Jul 2018

Currently on display in the Jerwood Library is a selection of scores from the personal library of the guitarist Julian Bream (b.1933), now held in the Jerwood library archives.

The items are drawn from the whole spectrum of his activities throughout his long career as one of the world’s greatest guitarists. Bream’s contribution to the guitar is enormous, and through a combination of his international performing career, prolific recorded output, his commissioning of new works and tireless work as an arranger, he has played a central role in the elevation of the guitar to its status today as an instrument at the heart of musical life throughout the world.
