This selection received a Grammy Award for "Best Instrumental Sharon Isbin's DREAMS OF THE WORLD is a global journey, bringing various folk traditions together in one woman's guitar. The music is collected like postcards, illustrating Isbin's travels, from Appalachia to the Amazon and beyond. Isbin plays with the soul of a folk musician. Her technique gives flair to such pastoral pieces as John Duarte's 'Appalachian Dreams.' Toru Takemitsu's 'Londonderry Air' is a Japanese take on the traditional Irish ballad 'Danny Boy.' Dance rhythms seep into many of the works, such as the melancholy samba within Padre Jose Antonio's Preludio No. 6.

Without sounding like a musicologist, Isbin takes the essence of each folk tradition and makes it her own. Although drawn from cultures around the world, this album stands as a unified whole. Isbin's performance reflects a minimalist style that will appeal to fans of Americana jazz guitarist Bill Frisell as well as to folk aficionados from around the world. Soloist Performance (without Orchestra)." Live Recording Personnel: Sharon Isbin (guitar, acoustic guitar). Recording information: Teldec Studio, Berlin, Germany (03/1999).
