Interview with WGTE's Brad Cresswell

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   "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.
