Summary note
"Joaquín Rodrigo (1901-99) is perhaps the most important Spanish composer of concert music in the twentieth century, based on both the high quality and large quantity of music he composed. His reputation rests on the Concierto de Aranjuez for guitar and orchestra. The especially expressive middle movement of this concerto inspired jazz arrangements by Miles Davis and Chick Corea in the 1960s, and appears in several film scores. Over eighty years after its composition, it still receives dozens of performances around the world every year. Joaquín Rodrigo: A Research and Information Guide is a comprehensive guide to the musical works and literature on a leading composer of our time, featuring several guitar concertos, concertos for flute, violin, harp, cello, and piano, as well as symphonic pieces, piano solos, chamber music, numerous songs, choral and stage works"-- Provided by publisher.
