CONCIERTO DE ARANJUEZ (ADAGIO)

Latest update on 10/08/2013

Artist: Regino Sainz de la Maza
Author: Joaquin Rodrigo
Label: Columbia
Year: 1947

On guitar with the Orchestra Nacional de España with Ataulfo Argenta conducting. First performed in Barcelona in 1940 with the same guitarist and the Orquesta Filarmonica de Barcelona with César Mendoza Lasalle conducting. Many performers did not realize the piece is not older than 1938. Rodrigo missed out on a lot of royalties that way.
