The publishing company, Ediciones Joaquín Rodrigo, founded in 1989. is exclusively dedicated to protect and give impulse to the musical legacy of the composer. Ediciones publishes and distributes the works of Joaquín Rodrigo, alone or in collaboration with other publishers, supplies orchestra rental material, grants licences, and works to safeguard the moral rights of Rodrigo’s entire production.

In 1999 and again in 2006 the company received the Music Prize for the Best Publisher of Classical Music.

The Victoria and Joaquín Rodrigo Foundation was set up in 1999, following the decease of Rodrigo, on the eve of the celebration of his centennial year, in 2001. It is the custodian of the vast Rodrigo Archive and facilitates access to the historical documentary and audiovisual material preserved. The Foundation sponsors diverse cultural activities to project the figure of the venerated composer worldwide.

Making use of its valuable legacy, the Foundation’s multi faceted work includes providing personalized attention to researchers, a program of activities for children and young people, setting up expositions, promoting recitals of Spanish music, producing new recordings and publishing books.

The combined efforts of the publishing house and the foundation have obtained magnificent results in their task of furthering the legacy of Joaquín Rodrigo and constitute a unique management experience in the world of culture.

The responsability for both organizations rests on the composer’s immediate family, headed by his daughter, Cecilia Rodrigo.

Victoria Kamhi

Today, March 8th, in our commitment to equality, we spotlight our “heroine” 

Victoria Kamhi Arditti
was a 20th century Turkish  pianist and writer who lived in Spain, the wife and inseparable companion of Spanish composer Joaquín Rodrigo. 

She was born in Istanbul, Turkey, on the banks of the Bosporus, in 1902. The daugher of Sephardic Jewish parents, Victoria's family belonged to the Turkish high bourgeoisie.  Her father was Ottoman and her mother Viennese.

Her musical talent became evident very early and she began to study the piano at the age of four. In Vienna she was a pupil of Jerzy Lalewicz and later studied in Paris with Lazare Levy and with the illustrious Catalan pianist, Ricardo Viñes. With the latter she worked on Spanish repertoire, from Albéniz to Turina and Rodrigo, whom she married in 1933.

From the time of her marriage to Joaquín Rodrigo, Victoria gave up her carrer as pianist to devote all her efforts to his production, collaborating with him on musical and literary aspects. She wrote the script for his ballets "Pavana Real" and "Juana y los Caldereros", and adapted the texts from the Dead Sea Scrolls for "Himnos de los Neófitos de Qumrán" and the zarzuela "El hijo fingido". She was also author of the German and French versions of "Música para un códice salmantino" on Miguel de Unamuno's "Oda de Salamanca", of  both versions for "Ausencias de Dulcinea" from Miguel de Cervantes, as well as the majority of Joaquín Rodrigo's songs. 

In 1986 her memoirs, "De la mano de Joaquín Rodrigo", were published, and these were later translated to English and published in the United States under the title "Hand in Hand with Joaquín Rodrigo. My life at the Maestro's side". The French edition, "Main dans la main avec Joaquín Rodrigo" appeared in 2004.

Victoria Kamhi died on July 21, 1997, two years before her husband's death.
