Joaquin Rodrigo

Michael Norwood

Joaquin Rodrigo wrote Concierto Andaluz in 1967 for the Romero Quartet, an ensemble that's known as the "The Royal Family of the Guitar." WRTI's Susan Lewis spoke with the Grammy-winning Los Angeles Guitar Quartet, whose members were mentored by the Romeros. The LAGQ continues to champion Concierto Andaluz while also expanding the repertoire for classical guitar.

Jill Pasternak speaks with classical guitar virtuoso Manuel Barrueco. During the last three decades, Mr. Barrueco's international tours have taken him to some of the most important musical centers in the world. And his recording catalogue includes over a dozen CDs covering the majority of the guitar repertoire. Mr. Barrueco's recording of the famed Concierto de Aranjuez by Joaquin Rodrigo, with Placido Domingo conducting the Philharmonia Orchestra, is considered by many critics to be the finest rendition of this work to date.
