Renowned guitarist Sharon Isbin teams up with the Grammy award-winning Pacifica Quartet for the first time in a new Cedille Records recording called Souvenirs of Spain and Italy. In their first collaboration on disc, the artists play works for guitar and strings, and selections range from the 20th-century to the Baroque, featuring Italian Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco's seldom-heard Quintet for Guitar and String Quartet as well as works by Vivaldi and Boccherini. "It's really beautiful music with a tremendous amount of variety," Isbin says.

For September 23, Sharon Isbin, Pacifica Quartet 'Souvenirs of Spain and Italy' is the KDFC: San Francisco 'Album Of the Week'
