Sharon Isbin - Affinity makes JAZZIZ: Guitar CD Roundup

Bookmark and Share

Multiple Grammy-winning classic guitar virtuoso Sharon Isbin premieres Chris Brubeck's "Affinity: Concerto for Guitar & Orchestra" on her latest Zoho release, Affinity. A remarkable 16-minute piece composed by the bassist-trombonist son of Dave Brubeck, it features Isbin's flawless nylon string playing in the company of the Maryland Symphony Orchestra, it. Elsewhere on Affinity, Isbin performs pieces by Cuban guitarist-composer Leo Brouwer ("El Decameron Negro"), Venezuelan guitarist-composer Antonio Lauro ("Waltz No. 3 Natalia") and Chinese avant garde composer Tan Dun ("Seven Desires for Guitar"). This is six-string work of the highest order.
