Multiple Grammy Award winner Sharon Isbin plays Villa-Lobos’ brilliant Guitar Concerto, which is infused with Brazilian folk songs. Kodály’s gypsy-laced Dances of Galánta sets the stage for Liszt’s intoxicating Mephisto Waltz. Bernstein moves through an infectious mambo, flirtatious cha-cha and a terrifying rumble before coming to a heart-tugging conclusion in Symphonic Dances from West Side Story.
Acclaimed for her lyricism, technique and versatility, Isbin, has appeared as soloist with nearly 200 orchestras. Named Best Classical Guitarist by Guitar Player magazine, Isbin has commissioned and premiered more concerti than any other guitarist.
