Julian Bream was born in London in 1933. He made his first recital appearance in 1947 and a year later made his London debut. He became prominent in Britain's musical life through his recitals, tours for the Arts Council, and television and radio appearances. Mauro Giuliani was one of several composers who succeeded in establishing the guitar concerto as an accepted musical convention. This is the first genuinely "virtuoso" concerto written for the instrument. Malcolm Arnold is a composer of pathos and deep intensity. His concertos, written mainly for virtuoso friends, includes the Guitar Concerto, written for Bream and recorded here with Arnold conducting.
Fully aware that Spain is the "spiritual" home of the guitar, Arnold has deliberately decided here to give the instrument a more universal character. He has circumvented the Spanish overtones of the instrument by subtle use of modal melodic material.
