On February 25 there will be a pre-concert talk on Concierto de Aranjuez and the life of a symphonic orchestra, under the series "Encuentros en la tercera planta" held in the Aula Karajan at the Sanchinarro Cultural Center in Madrid at 11:30. Silvia Sanz, orchestra conductor, and Luis López, musicologist and music professor, will participate.
Enjoy the 2nd movement of Rodrigo's flute concerto: Concierto pastoral.
As usual in Rodrigo's music, this work requires exceptional technique from the soloist.
In Rodrigo's words: 'The central movement is an Adagio tinged with melancholy, interrupted by an Allegro in pastoral rhythm... After a brilliant Cadenza it resolves into an Allegretto for the return later to the melodic theme'.
