If musical instruments are said to have souls, then there is no instrument with a soul more Spanish than the guitar. And now, there is arguably no recording with a more Spanish soul than Alma Española, a new recording of Spanish music performed by two of classical music's most celebrated artists: guitarist Sharon Isbin and vocalist Isabel Leonard. The first of its kind in decades, Alma Española has the potential to become a landmark. "It's actually the first time in 40 years that this type of art song from Spain - with guitar and a well-known, major, Spanish-speaking singer - have been brought together," Isbin said in a recent interview.
