NPR at Aspen: Sharon Isbin

Guitarist Sharon Isbin is often described a classical music triple threat: a stellar performer, a Grammy-winning recording artist and an accomplished and insightful teacher.

The only solo guitarist to win a Grammy in the last 30 years, Isbin recently completed a recording with the New York Philharmonic. She also founded the guitar departments at both Juilliard and Aspen.

Isbin performs "Batucada" by Uruguayan composer Isaías Savio (1900-1978) live at the prestigious Aspen Music Festival and talks with NPR's Fred Child about her music.
