Although this Concerto is a piece of pure music, without any specific program, its composer, by identifying a specific place – Aranjuez – intended to indicate a particular time – the end of the 18th and beginning of the 19th centuries, the courts of Charles IV and Ferdinand VII, a subtly stylized atmosphere of majas and bullfighters, and of Spanish sounds returning from America.

The music of the Concierto de Aranjuez sounds forth – hidden in the breeze which moves the leaves of the gardens – and only wishes to be agile like a butterfly, but as tightly controlled as a verónica, the pass of a bullfighter’s cape.

- Joaquín Rodrigo
