Rodrigo Concerto

For the APO concerts in May, we will be performing Ravel's Bolero and Beethoven's 3rd Symphony, as mentioned in an earlier post. In addition, we'll be playing Rodrigo's Concerto de Aranjuez, with soloist Jeremy Mayne on classical guitar. Last night at rehearsal, we read the orchestra part for this piece, and it's really charming. I listened to a recording this morning and was reminded how distinctive, original, and musical it is. What a great piece! And as a string player, the big string part in the 2nd half of the Adagio (2nd movement) is a real treat.
