Notes and Editorial Reviews

During the (almost) three years that have passed since I reviewed the original issue of this recording I have had no cause to revise my opinion of it. It remains one of the best of the numerous available versions of the ever-present Concierto de Aranjuez on all counts. There is by now nothing new to be expressed on the work's behalf that is not eccentric, and the time is long past when one might nominate a 'best' recording. The aficionados in our midst may prefer a record that couples it with another guitar concerto, of which there are several good ones, whilst others may welcome the chance to encounter some of Rodrigo's otherwise-unrecorded works, agreeable helpings of late Romanticism served by a master chef, Bátiz. In either case Read more this reissue of a very well engineered recording should be welcomed.
