About This Song
Concerto de Aranjuez guitar sheet music: The Concierto de Aranjuez is a classical guitar concerto by the Spanish composer Joaquín Rodrigo (1901—1999). Written in 1939, it is by far Rodrigo’s best-known work, and its success established his reputation as one of the most significant Spanish composers of the 20th century. Rodrigo’s concerto is in three movements, Allegro con spirito, Adagio, and Allegro gentile. The second movement in B minor, Adagio, is the best-known of the three, and is marked by its slow pace and calming melody. A feeling of quiet regret permeates the piece. Mr. Pasero’s rendition is homage to Joaquín Rodrigo and his masterwork. The song is transposed to the key of A Minor and highlights variations and interludes in the spirit of Rodrigo’s B Minor movement.
