    Seems likely they recorded the sitting-up take and flew in the reclining shots, which makes for a nice dramatization of the mood and style of the middle section. While I could do without the promotional narcissism, I have in the past found Sharon's playing to be as musical as any classical guitarist of our generation -- though this performance seems more about style than substance.

    Lovely and unique. Sharon is always especially great with her dynamics, and this rendition is no exception, creating great drama in a piece that is already one of the most dramatic in the classical guitar repertoire. I disagree with bobsound about the precise meter; she really milks the interlude, a risky decision that's bound to inflame some purists. I smiled watching her play while lounging on the sofa. Pretentious? Absolutely! But heck, that's why they call is SHOWbusiness. Nice job, Sharon. I'll certainly buy the recording.

    The playing has meticulously precise meter, very little tenuto, no expressive, approaching MIDI rhythmic accuracy. The impression I got was that in Isbin's theatrically staged performances ( like the one I heard several years ago at Juilliard or Manhattan School of Music), the costume, the modeling - the whole package is the primary attraction.
    The great flamenco players put enormous emotion into the music. They also got dressed. This video highlights the clearly articulated fingers while the music drones on and on over an unremitting obstinate obstinato, a great commercial for a high end perfume, luxury car. I listened twice- once with my eyes closed. Try it.
