Sharon Isbin - 5 Classic Albums is this week's MPR: Morning Glories

Bookmark and Share

Every weekday at 10 a.m., the hosts at Classical MPR play a standout work based on the theme for the week. We call these works Morning Glories. Join us as we celebrate the artistry of Sharon Isbin - Minnesota native, and master of the classical guitar. Her path as a musician has taken her from standards of the guitar repertoire, to folk-inspired music from many countries, to collaborations with noted performers from jazz and rock. She's also recorded extensively, and five of her albums have now been reissued as a box set, which we'll sample all week on Morning Glories.

Monday - Heitor Villa-Lobos: Guitar Concerto

Tuesday - John Duarte: Appalachian Dreams

Wednesday - Manuel Ponce: Concierto del Sur

Thursday - J. S. Bach: Concerto, BWV 1041/1058

Friday - Dreams of a World (selections): Pieces that draw on folk traditions of Ireland, Spain and Israel
