Esta recopilacion de grabaciones
historicas de obras del compositor
espanol Joaquin Rodrigo(1901-1999),
nos acercan aun mas al espiritu de
las obras que otras grabaciones
mas recientes de las mismas obras.
Aqui podemos escuchar a la orquesta
sinfonica de San Antonio con los Romeros,
para quienes Don Joaquin compuso el
"Concierto Andaluz" que aqui interpretan.
Tambien, aparece Nicanor Zabaleta en el
interpretando el "Concierto Serenata" que
Don Joaquin compusiese para el en alrededor
de 1956. De las otras obras como el
"Concieto Madrigal" de 1967, el "Concierto
de Aranjuez" de 1939 y el "Concierto Pastoral"
para Flauta y orquesta; no se puede decir
que son interpretados por a quienes fue dedicado,
pero quienes lo interpretan lo hacen de
manera formidable. Narciso Yepes, gran guitarrista
que interpreta en una guitarra de diez
cuerdas, es gran conocedor de la obra de
Don Joaquin. Las Orquesta que aqui interpretan
estan entre las mejores del mundo.

Thid 2 CD sey from DGG presents a nice sampling of his virtuosity and versatility in the concertante ... Sept. 22 2014
By TONY L. ENGLETON C.N.M.T. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
09-21-2014 Joahcim Rodrigo wrote several works for the guitar, his primary instrument, but he also gave us concertante pieces of music for flute, harp and multiple guitars. Thid 2 CD sey from DGG presents a nice sampling of his virtuosity and versatility in the concertante repertoire, and there is the rundown. On CD #1, we have the famous Cncierto de Aranjuez, with soloist Narciso Yepes and the Phiharmonia led by Garcia Navarro. The work rubs a leisurely 22:36 and features one of the technically finest Adagios in all disc-dom," and that is saying a lot. With the use of my headphones, because this is very early A.M. listening, I could not detect any, and I mean ANY, errors, slips or signs of a lack of attention to detail. No siree, this disc is as c lean as they come and a bravo for the DGG engineering efforts.
In the runaway hit Con. de Aranjuez, beloved for it's heart wrenchingly beautiful long and haunting Adagio, both missers Navarro and Yepes are perfectly matched as if they were one artistso perfectly atuned to wch other's ideas and thought concerning this little masterpiece for guitar and orchestra. The Adagio's cadenza has to he heard to be believed, so don't take my word for it, but buy you copy today, and isten for yourselves. The soloist's climax is, however, a bit over-ripe and I found it ever so slightly disturbing the delicate balancing act these two had so skillfully constructed. Yet, they do return toi "normalcy" with the highly rhythmic clarity of the concluding "allegro gentile, (5:12). and , hence, all sins are forgiven---L.O.L.
His little work for solo guitar titled Entre Oliveras runs a very brief 5:02 and is miulti facetted piece intended for the dancelike melodies of his more populat r works in the concertante genre, and after only one close listening, I had to admit that not all Rodrigo is as appealing as the two major works on this pair of discount discs running a bargain basement 2 hours 34 plus minutes product. For the most part, this twin set of CD's from Hamburg recording venues.
All of the works on this set were composed after the Concierto de Aranjuez, nd hence show it's influence, either from a stylistic point of view or in terms of an actual quote. The Concierto andaluz for 4 guitatrs is the second major work and I have always found it difficult to differentiate between , say, 2 or 3 guitars, violins flutes or other multiple yet identical instruments. Seeing the music being performed is very helpful, of course, and for the soloists, such as the 4 Romeros, it must be lots of fun doing this work in concert, but simply listening to it is for me, problematic. Still, this concierto gets plenty of attention from Los Romeros as they are famous principally for this 1967 composition. The 9:04 Adagio is a gorgeously rapt work, and the gentle, subtle and very atmospheric piece and tender intensity and flawless technical expertize. I must say, I was impressed and moved by this very lovley music. Honestly, this Adagio is every bit as fine as that other one, the Concierto de aranjusez's. the closing Allegretto is zesty, lively, and wonderfully rhythmic. It has an enquenchable appeal to it, and a charm I found captivating, as I simply had to encore the entire work, composed in 1967 and recorded here in 1968, I believe.
The final piece on CD #1 is the Concierto pastoral for Flute and Orchestra, dating from 1978 and performed here by flautist Patrick Gallois with the Philharmonia under the direction of Ion Martin, a Romanian born Austrian conductor from Bucharest presently 54 years old. His father was a composer, Constanin Marin and that helped oprn dsome door for this young maestro. He has led the London Phil., the Leipzig anf Israel Philharmonics, and now lived in Switzerland, and in his youth was an assistant ot Claudio Abbado. the Concierto runs 23:52 and features some of the composer's best examples of the rising tide of dissonance, especially in the long, multi facerted Adagio of 10:15, which is the cenrtral core of the work, with an uneventful opening Allegro, but is crowned by a lively and handsome Allegretto, much as the one in the Andaluz Concierto for 4 guitars, mentioned earlier. I liked this modern piece even though the fluttering of the solo flute can be a bit much.
CD #2
The Fantasia for a Gintlehombre was written in 1954 and is, along with it's much more popular comanion the Concierto de Aranjuez. By he time we reach the 1960's and 70's works contained herein, we are gently and judiciously introduced into the modern world of dissonant Rodrigo. The results for me are not too harsh, but rather interesting, and even inviting. I am learning that there is more than Schoenberg, Berg, and Webern and new music, in small controlled doses is, for me, a good idea. There must be something to this new era of music if the leading musicians of the contemporary world pretty much all agree that the afore mentioned composers are that important. It will take time, for I am a truly Classical/Romantic listener.
The Fantasia para un gentilhombre gets a bold, highly melodic and quite warm introduction by Maestro Garcia Navarro, along with the splendid English Chamber orchestra Narcisso Yepes enters with his golden and deliciously rich palette of tonal color, which is what this superb guitarist is known for. My coolness towards the fantasia stems from it's "background music" slant as I have never really appreciated the work as most other listeners have

Quality Collection at a Great Price May 11 2010
By Avi Ewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The great problem with Rodrigo's canon of compositions is that the finest lesser known works are usually bundled together in collections weighted down with pieces that deserve to remain lesser known. Otherwise, these small gems are doled out with his foremost creations, which are already in most collections, often in several versions.
My delight here is that while I bought the 2 CD package for the Concierto Serenade, with its featured harp performance, I also got a handful of other small wonders. And, although I was in a sense coerced into paying for yet another reading of the Concierto de Aranjuez and Fantasia para un Gentilhombre, the extra cost was virtually nil...and these renderings were, in fact, among the premiere interpretations to be found.

Overall, this is a wonderful package that I recommend without reservation.

Rodrigo is magnificent! Aug. 31 2005
By Timothy Tebalt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first discovered Rodrigo while living in New Orleans and hearing his Concerto Andalusia performed by the Louisiana Philharmonic. The guitar parts were performed by the famous Romeros, who also perform the guitar parts on this recording. Rodrigo's music has an uncanny ability to evoke feelings, sensations, and visualizations of rural Spain, as well as its romantic, and at times even medieval, past. Truly breathtaking. It is evident that this extraordinarily talented 20th century composer deeply loved his homeland.
