“Julian Bream does everything, it goes without saying… emotional depth is in the second movement of the Arnold, the slow movement—a threnody for Django Reinhardt—most imaginative. This concerto was written for Julian Bream and he plays it magnificently, as do the Melos Ensemble. The recording is first-rate—clear but not at all clinical….The Giuliani demonstrates Bream’s technique and musicianship.” (Gramophone) “Berkeley: Sonatina -an enjoyably amiable piece; Ravel: Pavane -very relaxed account; Roussel: Segovia- a characteristic touch of acerbity; the two sonatas of Cimarosa both very personable” (Penguin Guide)
