Bookmark and Share

The colorful Pacifica String Quartet is heard frequently here on WCRB – and so is the soulful guitarist Sharon Isbin. Now they've met and formed a spectacular musical friendship, resulting in a new recording full of shifting Mediterranean moods. The CD, called Souvenirs of Spain and Italy features Italian composers who have dipped into the colorful world of Spanish idioms. When asked about the CD, cellist Brandon Vamos said, "What I love about working with Sharon is her attention to detail, subtlety and nuance, rubato and timing, and her diligence and desire to get things just right."

The vibrant Pacifica Quartet is a perfect match for guitarist Sharon Isbin on WCRB's CD of the Week, where the intoxicating flavor of Spain gets cooked up by Italian composers.  SEE THE WCRB: Boston MA PAGE
