Side One: Concierto de Aranjuez - Rodrigo / Two : 5 other Latin-Guitar & Orch. pieces by Various Composers - CFP 40012

£5.99

Product description

(featuring guitarist John Zaradin, backed by the Philomusica of London, conducted by Guy Barbier)

Spanish composer Joaquin Rodrigo published his "Concierto de Aranjuez" in 1939 ; it enjoyed immediate success, which has been continuous, mainly due to the work corresponding, more-or-less precisely to what a listener-on-the-street, would imagine a great Spanish guitar concerto to sound like.
Side One : Concierto de Aranjuez for Guitar & Orchestra, by Rodrigo :-
1) I Allegro con spirit 2) II Adagio 3) Allegro gentile.

Side Two begins with "Balletto", by the Early/Mid-18C German composer, Sylvius Weiss. It is a little dance movement, one of his many works that transcribe well for guitar.
Side Two : 1) Balletto for Guitar & Orchestra, by Weiss.

Italian Girolamo Frescobaldi was one of the most influential keyboard-based composers of the Early/Mid-17C (it was he, who first composed the types of Fugues, that were later developed so famously on the Church Organ, by Johann Sebastian Bach). The "autographic" air & variations featured here, were written for harpsichord and adapted for guitar, by Andres Segovia.
Side Two : 2) Frescobaldi Air & Variations for Guitar & Orchestra.

Mid-20C Venezuelan Antonio Lauro, composed many national waltzes for guitar, this featured-piece being typical of the winning tunefulness, and good-natured energy, that they all display. Lauro was even described as the "Johann Strauss (II) of Venezuela"!
Side Two : 3) Valse Criollo for Guitar & Orchestra, by Lauro.

A keyboard-based composer like Frescobaldi, Spaniard Isaac Albeniz was one of the talented generation of turn-of-the-19C/20C composers, who were collectively entitled the "Modern Spanish School of Music". "Granada" is a movement taken from his "Iberia" suite, a collection of romantic and colourful portrayals of his country's cities, transcribed for guitar by Francisco Tarrega.
Side Two : 4) Granada for Guitar & Orchestra, by Albeniz.

The LP concludes with "Spanish Serenade", by Joaquin Malats, another keyboard-based, turn-of-the-19C/20C composer. Again, this is an attractive, little piece that fits the guitar as comfortably as it fits its original instrument.
Side Two : 5) Spanish Serenade, by Malats.
