5.0 out of 5 stars The music and life of Maestro Rodrigo March 29, 2008
Format:Audio CD
If I had to choose a favorite song it very well might be "Concierto de Aranjuez; I've heard it by various performers countless times. That said, this latest edition to my collective Rodrigo musical memory has been enhanced way beyond my expectations from watching the accompnaying DVD. Granted it isn't Blue Ray Hi-Def but it is spectacular . On a 50 inch plasma with surround sound it is excellent. The first video is a performance with cutaway views of the gardens at Aranjuez, which contrary to one reviewrs remarks, has everything to do with the song. The video reveals the story behind the music. This was the honeymoon site of the Maestro Rodrigo and his wife Dona Victoria. The occasional narration goes on to reveal the sadness in the song reflects the loss of a child that was to come. All in all it is very entertaining and informative; besides the music by Pepe Romero and orchestra is outstanding. Seeing the Maestro Rodrigo and Dona Victoria strolling the grounds is very touching, as is their love story. That is just the half of the video. The second part is a documentary on the life of Maestro Rodrigo that is nothing short of exceptional. Included are home movies when he was younger; various celebrations off his life are revealed courtesy of his family. It is very touching to see the love that Dona Victoria and Maestro Rodrigo share. She reads to him(he is blind), tells him about the colors and everything he can't visually perceive. Throughout this documentary , entitled "Shadows and Light" the neophyte will learn all about Rodrigo and his music. The film is worth the price of the CD by itself. The musical selections bear witness to the man and the genius that is Rodrigo. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Great playing on the CD but DVD quality is weak August 17, 2006
Format:Audio CD
The Rodrigo Collection is a compilation of analog Rodrigo guitar concerti recordings from 1975 to 1979. The guitar playing is robust, impassioned and aggressive, but not as sensitive and refined as recordings by Pepe and Angel during the last decade. Twenty some years of practice and performing makes a big difference! Although the recording quality is decent, it is not as full bodied as modern digital recordings by the Romeros. The midrange is thin and slightly bright and stereo imaging a bit flat. It's just not a great digitalization and remix of the original analog recording. Lastly, the "Shadows and Light DVD" transfer from analog tape to DVD is terrible. If I didn't know I had put a DVD in the player I'd swear it was an old worn video tape. Despite these warts, it's a must have for any diehard Rodrigo or Romero fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fine CD ,Lame DVD January 28, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I thought the sound quality on the cd was fine. But if you're buying this for the Concerto on the DVD you should know that half the time you won't be seeing the concerto. Yes, while the musicians play you will frequently be shown statues, fountains, gardens and other pretty images that have nothing to do with the music and take up way too much time on screen.That kind of thing might fine on a tourism video which you might or might not watch once, but watching the concerto performance would have been far more interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great multimedia September 13, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The first CD is very good, the sound of the concerts is great, but the DVD is another thing, it's great to see Pepe Romero in the Aranjuez Concert and the documentary about the late great master Joaquín Rodrigo touch me very deeply.

My only regret it's that you can only hear the Aranjuez Concert if you play the DVD and not in a CD player (car for example)

You learn so much about Aranjuez watching this DVD and it lets you to get to know Rodrigo. It is emotional and enriching and it is a documentary you will watch many times and share with your friends.
