Notes and Editorial Reviews

This live recording of the very well known Concierto de Aranjuez by Joaquín Rodrigo is performed by talented Italian guitarist Giulio Tampalini and the Arturo Benedetti Orchestra of the International Festival, conducted by Piercarlo Orizio. Tampalini plays some pieces which are certainly the most recorded ones in the music history; they are true classical works which have become an obligatory part of the most talented guitarists’ repertoire.

The Concierto de Aranjuez is certainly one of the most famous concertos of the 20th century. Written in Paris in 1939, Rodrigo literally carried it in his suitcase when he returned to his home country immediately following the Spanish civil war, that terrible and bloody conflict
Read more which had such an impact on Spain that its effects lasted for at least another 30 years.

The Concierto is one of those rare classical compositions that has enjoyed popular success from its first performance (November 9th, 1940 at the Palau de la Mésica Catalana in Barcelona).

The Concierto is coupled with a few pieces of music for solo guitar, which are part of another, more intimate, certainly lesser known side of this composer from Sagunto, offering the audience a second perspective. Read less

 Music is ok but... August 29, 2012 By Betty M. (Creedmoor, NC) See All My Reviews "I received the CD in a timely manner, but it was not the music I was looking for. I ordered the CD via a link on the WCPE classical radio station. I had heard an incredible song, loved it, but had no idea what the name of it was. I went to the WCPE radio station website and looked up what was playing at that specific time. The website gave me a link to order the same music, which I did. Unfortunately, the music I was so taken by was not on the CD.
