Sharon Isbin on Speaking Freely with Dennis Raimondi

 

Sharon Isbin is a widely recorded American classical guitarist, recording artist, concert performer, and founder of the Guitar Department at the Juilliard School. Ms. Isbin has been hailed by the Boston Magazine as the "pre-eminent guitarist of our time." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjROsUG6xoE

 

Lily Afshar

 

I finally got to meet Heather Miller-Rodriguez (of KRUU's Lyrical Venus) in person today, and a little Venus must've rubbed off. This week's show highlights female musicians, especially American classical guitarist Sharon Isbin and Iranian American guitarist Lily Afshar.

This is my favorite review: "Lily Afshar is a Guitar Goddess, but instead of wielding an electric axe, she spins a fine web of music on acoustic guitar. In fact, she's one of the best classical guitarists in the world."
