Notes and Editorial Reviews

Carlos Bonell plays the cadenza of the Adagio of the Concierto de Aranjuez most sensitively, and the weight of the orchestral contribution is judged to a nicety throughout.

-- Gramophone [3/1983]
reviewing Concierto de Aranjuez, previously reissued as Decca 400054

-------------

Dutoit's performance has characteristic flexibility over phrasing and rhythm and is hauntingly atmospheric... Alicia de Larrocha's lambent feeling for the work's poetic evocation is matched by her brilliance in the nocturnal dance-rhythms.

-- The Penguin Guide [2003/4 edition]
