Music Track - Bream
This is five minutes of sheer technical brilliance, and it's hard to accept that this is one musician and not an overlay of several tracks. Julian Bream is also an Englishman and not Spanish. The video accompanying this piece, "Memories of Alhambra" also shows how Islam dominated the southern part of Spain before the 17th century. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqfkMgVaOeY It just so happens that my friend Paul, in England is having a short trip down to the south of Spain today. I wish him "bon voyage." I'm also rather envious!
