Sean Shibe enters the Chart at No. 3

Already described as ‘umissable’ (Herald), the debut solo release from Sean Shibe, Dreams & Fancies: English music for solo guitar, entered the Specialist Classical Chart this week at No. 3.

This comes off the back of a FIVE STAR review in this month’s Classical Music magazine, and glowing reviews from both The Scotsman and The Herald:

‘Shibe is another Bream, or something close. His playing unites finesse and poetry, and beautifully suggests a continuity of idiom.’
— Sunday Times, July 2017

‘Everything here is rich in melody and Shibe is as articulate a virtuoso as Bream, communicating the precision of these intimate chamber pieces with real passion… unmissable’
— The Herald, July 2017

‘Shibe has already secured a formidable reputation in both concert and on record. This latest disc plays very much to his strengths: the technical challenges thrown at him (by non-player composers) are easily surmounted, and his sound is beautifully captured.’
— Classical Music, August 2017, FIVE STARS
