Multi-award-winning guitarist Sean Shibe brings a fresh and innovative approach to the traditional classical guitar, while also exploring contemporary music and repertoire for electric guitar. Camino is Shibe’s first album on Pentatone, an introspective program exploring French-Spanish musical borders with works by Maurice Ravel, Erik Satie, Francis Poulenc, Manuel de Falla, Antonio José, and Federico Mompou. Shibe has deliberately granted Mompou a central role on this album, saying his music displays “melancholy, aimlessness, and a whole host of other feelings not to be avoided or fixed or solved, but experiences to be deeply felt; when his music reflects, it is less with sad nostalgia than genuine wonder and excitement at what this means for the future.”
