Spanish Guitar

The title Spanish Guitar is but a hint of the riches in store for you in this musical journey planned for January featuring multiple GRAMMY Award-winner guitarist Sharon Isbin and the Symphony led by Spanish conductor Josep Caballé Domenech. The Symphony brings the rich cultural and musical heritage of Spain and Latin America to life through this exquisite selection of music that is sure to delight.

[Isbin] gets nuances out of the classical guitar few guitarists since Segovia have matched. Everything she performs bespeaks perfect technical control yet suggests spontaneous improvisation—the art that conceals art.” —Chicago Tribune
