Julian Bream: My Favorite Albums (Sony, ten CDs). A stupendously economical way to acquire ten of Bream’s finest albums for RCA (it costs less than $30). Included are his classic recordings of Benjamin Britten’s Nocturnal Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez, and a pair of Bach lute suites, together with shorter pieces by Albéniz, Berkeley, Dowland, Granados, Roussel, Tárrega, and Villa-Lobos. If you aren’t familiar with his playing, start here and revel (TT).
