We are delighted to welcome Craig Ogden back to Bromgrove once again. For us, he has put together a Memorial to Julian Bream, who did more than anyone else to establish the guitar as part of the British classical music world in the 20th century, and who died, aged 87, on 14th August 2020 - when the mind of the world was dominated by the covid pandemic. The concert consists of 4 works commissioned and premiered by Bream, interspersed by short works by Renaissance composers Dowland and Johnson whose ‘rediscovery’ owed much to Bream

2021 - 2022 Season
