Concierto de Aranjuez
Concierto de Aranjuez is a rich visual and aural feast focusing on Joaquin Rodrigo's most famous work. The film is buoyant and lively as it captures Spanish sculpture and architecture set to the music of Concierto de Aranjuez, and alternately touching and compassionate as guitarist Pepe Romero eloquently relates the story and inspiration behind this beautiful work. Featuring Sir Neville Marriner conducting the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields.
