Grammy winners and Aspen Music Festival regulars Sharon Isbin and the Pacifica Quartet were going to team up to play music for guitar and string quartet by Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Vivaldi, Turina and Boccherini this August in Harris Hall. But this is a concert you can hear on their recently released album, "Souvenirs of Spain & Italy."

Classical Music from Aspen host Chris Mohr chats with guitarist Sharon Isbin about their recent release.

Summer classical music host Chris Mohr is coming back to Aspen. He has loved classical music since he was twelve. “And I owe it all to radio,” Chris explains. “I grew up in a farm town east of Cleveland. Most of the music I heard growing up was Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, and other favorites of my parents.
