The purpose of this treatise is to present a survey of the solo guitar works written for Julian Bream and to illuminate their historical significance and lasting importance to the guitar repertoire. For each piece, this treatise provides a brief biographical sketch of each composer, a survey of the relevant literature and, where necessary, a brief theoretical analysis. At the end of each section, a "Performer's Note" has been included, which details the specific difficulties of performing each piece. Hopefully, this treatise will provide guitarists interested in the pieces written for Julian Bream a reference for performance and study.
