Written for solo guitar and orchestra, it reveals the composer's great affinity for those two mediums, as well as his reverence for the long-standing traditions of Spanish Classical music.
It was composed after Rodrigo's return to Madrid from France he fled the turmoil of the Spanish Civil War inand premiered there to great success in Aside from its overt references to Spanish folk music and straightforward lyrical disposition, the Concierto de Aranjuez is notable for the way in which Rodrigo managed to wed the relatively small voice of the solo guitar to that of the full orchestra.
His writing is extremely idiomatic for both guitar and orchestra, and one leaves a hearing of the work with the impression that writing for the two together is quite natural; the guitar never seems overmatched or out of its element.
Rodrigo's orchestration is simple, clear, and yet interesting: at times he creates a dialog between soloist and ensemble, and at others he manages to turn them together into one giant guitar -- an extremely imaginative and successful effect.
Rodrigo also creates distinctive colors by combining the guitar with other solo instruments, Rodrigo`s Guitar Concerto De Atanjuez - Various - Lifetime Romance - Melody Of Love as the bassoon.
The opening movement Allegro Ojos Cafés - Various - Serenata Spirito is primarily constructed from a single rhythmic motive, introduced at the outset by the solo guitar.
This is later combined with a number of more lyrical themes, all of which are reminiscent of Spanish folk song. The mood turns melancholy in the second movement Adagioas the soloist accompanies a solo English horn with simple chords.
The guitar eventually takes up this theme against an Biche - Flem - Passeport orchestral background.
