Guitarist Sharon Isbin and soprano Jessica Rivera join forces for an exquisite evening of love and longing. Their seductive program ranges from Spanish and Latin American songs and solo guitar music to award-winning American composer Richard Danielpour’s intensely expressive settings of poems by the Persian poet Rumi.
Acclaimed for her extraordinary lyricism, technique and versatility, Grammy Award winner Sharon Isbin was named the 2020 Musical America Instrumentalist of the Year, the first guitarist ever to receive the coveted honor. She is often hailed as the pre-eminent guitarist of our time.
With a voice praised by the San Francisco Chronicle for its “effortless precision and tonal luster,” Grammy Award-winner Rivera is one of the most creatively inspired vocal artists performing before the public today.
