Show Description

Spanish guitar solos inspired by the voice

  • Richard Danielpour – Of Love and Longing
  • Osvaldo Golijov – Lúa Descolorida
  • Villa-Lobos – Aria from Bachiananas Brasilieras No.5
  • Monsalvatge/Sharon Isbin – from Canciones Negras
  • Falla/Llobet/Pujol – Siete canciones populares españolas

Guitarist Sharon Isbin and soprano Jessica Rivera join forces for an exquisite evening of love and longing. Their seductive program ranges from Spanish and Latin American songs and solo guitar music to award-winning American composer Richard Danielpour’s intensely expressive settings of poems by the Persian poet Rumi.

Acclaimed for her extraordinary lyricism, technique and versatility, Grammy Award-winner Sharon Isbin was named the 2020 Musical America Worldwide Instrumentalist of the Year, the first guitarist ever to receive the coveted honor.

With a voice praised by the San Francisco Chronicle for its “effortless precision and tonal luster,” Grammy Award-winner Jessica Rivera is one of the most creatively inspired vocal artists performing before the public today.

Reviews

Rivera floated a gorgeous pianissimo second verse of Villa-Lobos’ aria from Bachianas Brasilieros No. 5 and lent a Latina charge of her own to the Siete Canciones Populares Españolas by Falla. Isbin clearly likes to play this music. [...] Rivera injected tons of personality while singing them with clarity.”

- Aspen Times

piquantly appealing settings of three poems of erotic and spiritual ecstasy
