Good gracious, Dr. Afshar is simply astonishing. Her playing is technically impeccible, her interpretations are inspiring, and her selection of repertoire is innovative and enjoyable. True to form, Dr. Afshar has broadened the guitar's capabilities by having new music written for it but also by altering the guitar itself. She's added frets to get quarter tones needed for Turkish and world music! Leave it to Afshar to think of something no one else has thought of and to bring the guitar to a whole new level. The album has new works no one has ever heard before (some written for her) and it also has works by known composers like Brouwer and Morel. Many thanks to Afshar for doing something new and taking the Classical Guitar World by storm.

I first heard about this artist on National Public Radio years ago and purchased the CD online. It's been pretty disappointing. There are a few songs I can listen to, but most of it is just awful. Too much dissonance and no logical chord progression on most of her songs. They're not even relaxing. They're painful to listen to. It's music that makes no sense; like trying to read the mad writings of a dyslexic engineer.

I've rarely had one of the songs from Hemispheres come up on my play-list and I be able to stand listening through the entire thing. She's talented on the guitar, but her music is poorly written.

This is my second CD of guitar music by Lily. I am absolutley enthralled with her playing; still prefer all of the tracks on the "Jug of Wine" CD' though.

Lily is a very good guitarist, She brings a nice variety of music to the table in this CD. If you love the guitar, you can't go wrong with this CD.
