Notes and Editorial Reviews

Although classical guitar is a relatively recent invention, it is an effective instrument for the reinterpretation of traditional music. For example, the Persian folk tunes arranged by Lily Afshar for her album A JUG OF WINE AND THOU are remarkably evocative of a time and place far removed from the instrument most commonly associated with Spain and Italy.
In addition to folk songs, Afshar's selections include waltzes, tangos and dances from throughout Europe and Latin America. Most famous may be 'Sevilla,' a tango written for piano by Isaac Albeniz. Although not originally written for guitar, Albeniz's work has always had the energy and sensually that comes so naturally to the instrument.
Afshar's complex guitar work flows smoothly
Read more through many styles, whether it be the classic Spanish dance 'Anduluza' or Mexican ballad 'Estrellita.' Her technique has long been the subject of accolades, from everyone up to and including the master, Andrés Segovia. It has earned her several awards, and a position as head of the guitar program at the University of Memphis. Read less
