Pacifica Quartet and Guitarist Sharon Isbin Offer ‘Souvenirs of Spain and Italy' on Cedille Records

In their first collaboration on disc, the artists play works for guitar and strings by Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Vivaldi, and Boccherini  

The Grammy Award-winning Pacifica Quartet and multiple Grammy-winning guitarist Sharon Isbin join forces for Souvenirs of Spain & Italy, an uncommon album of music for strings and guitar from the Baroque to the mid-20th century.

Souvenirs of Spain & Italy, available August 23, 2019, on Cedille Records, is the first joint recording by these renowned artists and marks Isbin's Cedille label debut. 

"It's really beautiful music with a tremendous amount of variety," Isbin says.

The program spotlights Italian-born composers influenced by Spanish idioms. Works include Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco's Quintet for Guitar and String Quartet, Op. 143; Emilio Pujol's guitar arrangement of Antonio Vivaldi's lute Concerto in D Major, RV 93, edited by Isbin; and Luigi Boccherini's Quintet for Guitar and String Quartet in D Major, G. 448.
