La Noche de los Mayas
Concierto de Aranjuez for Guitar
Mar del Plata 70
La Jota Aragonese
The influence of Latin American and Spanish folk traditions on classical music of the late 19th century and beyond has been profound. Saint-Saëns and Ravel, coming from outside of the tradition, sourced from it a rich vein of musical possibilities. And to this the joyful celebration of nature that is the Rodrigo guitar Concierto, the “shockingly primitive” score of Mexican composer Revueltas, the infectious sense of rhythm from the famous tango composer, Piazzolla, and the weaving of a wonderfully rich and colourful musical tapestry is assured.
