 Why not recommended April 15, 2014 By Mary Lynn H. (San Antonio, TX) See All My Reviews "I can't understand why this CD is not recommended. It might be the best version of Concierto de Aranjuez that I've ever heard. Kraft makes the piece sound fresh and new. The second movement is extra special. Enjoy." Report Abuse
