Notes and Editorial Reviews

Performance: 5 (out of 5) / Sound: 4 (out of 5)
Since Bream retired from public performing three years ago he has kept busy with his memoirs – a tasty prospect – and taken time out to trawl his broadcast archive for this equally appetising collection. Track dates range from 1956 to 1985, the earliest showing off the 23-year-old player’s unusually flamboyant and impulsive way with a concise sonata by Turina. The more familiar, focused and distilled style of his maturity dominates the programme, which starts by borrowing Bach’s D minor violin Chaconne.
