Masterworks 5: Guitarra Española

Inspired by the Royal Palace of Aranjuez outside of Madrid, Rodrigo captures “the fragrance of magnolias, the singing of birds, and the gushing of fountains” in his concerto for classical guitar featuring Ana Vidovic. Accompanied by Vrebalov’s Gratitude from Sea Ranch Songs and Frank’s Coqueteos from Leyendas, Beethoven closes this program with his “revolutionary” First Symphony — a sparkling declaration of his young talent.
