I first heard part of the concert on NPR and was able to track down this CD (NPR's site was not a lot of help!!!)

Anyway, there is a lot of variety of sounds in this work, which surprised me and is what caused me to purchase it in the first place. Hard to explain, but very good music.

The recording quality is also excellent and deserves to be played through a good system.

Known primarily for his guitar concertos there is of course much more to Joaquín Rodrigo, and a series of his orchestral music is certainly an enticing project, at least on paper. I do wonder a little how representative the music on this disc may be, however. Though tuneful, often energetic, often pleasingly tuneful in what sounds like a mixture of archaicism, Spanish folk music and impressionism, most of the music here is rather thin gruel. Most interesting is the 1942 piano concerto, Concierto Heroico, here given in a 1990s revision by Joaquín Achúcarro. It is a spirited work, full of bright colors and vigor, though the thematic material is often short-breathed and not particularly convincingly developed. The Largo contains some dreamlike, visionary moments reminiscent of the Concierto de Aranjuez; otherwise, there is plenty to enjoy on a first hearing but little that actually sticks in the mind.

The rest of the music is variable at best. The Preludio para un poema a la Alhambra creates a shimmering atmosphere, but contains little to keep the listener’s attention, whereas the Musica para un jardin is, I am sorry to say, a pretty vapid affair – again, there is some colorful orchestration, but this is pretty dreary stuff. Homenaje a la tempranica at least exhibits a sense of tragedy and doom, though the musical material is, once again, forgettable, whereas Juglares is light and forgettable, but at least spirited enough (it was apparently Rodrigo’s first orchestral work).

I have no complaints about the performances, which sound as spirited, colorful and idiomatic as one could hope for, and the recorded sound is vivid. Yet overall, it is hard to conclude that this issue is of much other than specialist interest – though I will certainly try to look into some of the other volumes of the series to see whether this issue is representative.
