Journey to the Amazon
Michael Tanner | Santa Cruz, CA USA | 03/13/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Sharon is a wonderful guitarist who has been concertizing since she was fourteen years old. She plays with technical mastery and feeling, but more importantly she takes risks and has not gone stale. A few of the more well known compositions hold up very well next to other versions of say, Segovia and Christopher Parkening. Why would you want to hear these recordings since other masters have already done them so splendidly? They haven't been done with Brazilian percussion and saxophone. The other reason to purchase this CD is because of the wonderful world premier of Thiago de Mello's compositions. Two for one: familiar Brazilian compositiona by Barrios et. al, with a little more "Brazilian" feel."
Beyond beautiful, a wonderful work

"This recording was one of my early exposures to Sharon Isbin on CD. I had the pleasure of experiencing her live performance prior to the purchase of this CD. As a fan of heavier guitar music, (i.e. Steve Vai and Eric Johnson), I never believed I would enjoy a classical guitarist. I was so completely moved by the performance Ms. Isbin gives on this CD, that I promptly purchased "Dreams of a World" and most recently "Baroque Favorites for Guitar". I highly recommend this CD if you want to hear a guitarist whose work defies traditional categorization. I give it 10 stars! Please try to see Ms. Isbin live in recital if she comes to your area; you will experience a remarkable performance."
