I went to have a watch of this but it's been 'blocked in my country on copyright grounds'.
I'm crying too, Guitarded. I'm hoping one of the computer savvy delcampers can advise us or create a Canuck-friendly link. (we won't tell anybody!)
One of my favourite scenes from My Life in Music
was Bream playing Walton's 2nd Bagatelle for the composer at the latter's home in Ischia. They're sitting outside in what looks like a beautiful setting, and Walton, glass of wine in hand and evidently ravished by the music coming from Bream's guitar, says something not quite audible but apparently self-deprecating about such beauty coming not from him, Walton, but from the guitarist. Bream responds, "That's exactly as you wrote it." To which Walton replies, "I know it is, but you've got it better."
Such a touching and meaningful tribute to the magic Bream could create with his playing when the composer gives more of the credit for a moving performance of his own music to the performer than himself.
