5.0 out of 5 stars Rhapsodic, Sparkling Performance August 25, 2010
Verified Purchase
What a wonderful, vibrant CD! This happened to be one of my first musical purchases on Amazon, and certainly will always have too stand as one of my finest, and most beloved. The selections on this CD, led my Ms. Sharon Isbin's beautiful guitar playing are outstanding, and the performances likewise. The CD begins with Ms. Isbin and the Laussanne Orchestra, led by Lawrence Foster, playing perhaps the finest guitar concerto ever made, Joaquin Rodrigo's famous "Aranjuez". This is one of the finest concertos, for any instrument, of the last century.

Also included is Rodrigo's Fantasy for a gentleman, and finally Vivaldi's similarly otherworldly D major concerto for lute and 2 violins, superbly adapted for guitar. Ms. Isbin improvises, especially in Vivaldi's concerto - but always in good taste, and for me, it just makes this recording all the more endearing. One commentator here has said this disc presents one of the great performances of the century, which I will not gainsay. This is simply gorgeous music, and Sharon's youthful recording might come to be a defintive statement on both of these concertos. Highly recommended.
