Program Notes

Adagio from Concierto de Aranjuez


Joaquín Rodrigo, composer

Dr. William G. McManus, arranger

The Adagio (second movement) from the Concerto de Aranjuez for Guitar and Orchestra is a masterful arrangement set in the musical style as played by the Grimethorpe Colliery Brass Band in the film Brassed Off. With its laid-back rock style and pulsating rhythm, the work features solo flugelhorn on the beautiful theme, representing the flavor and feel of the beautiful gardens of Aranjuez, Spain.
