English music for solo guitar: works by Walton, L Berkeley, Dowland, Arnold and Britten
Sean Shibe (guitar)
Reviewed October 2017
Not just great guitar playing, but for two members of this year’s jury the best they had ever heard. At 25, Sean Shibe is that rare thing, a mature philosopher among musicians. He draws a rainbow of colours from his instrument, and Arnold’s Fantasy is a highlight in a balanced programme of English music.
