Quote from: dirkronk on February 11, 2008, 05:25:40 AMFor the famous Rodrigo Aranjuez concerto, my favorite has long been the classic Decca/London recording of Yepes with Argenta. However, every major guitarist records this, so surely you'll get other recommendations, as well. IIRC, Rodrigo wrote it originally for one of the Romeros.

Quote from: Drasko on February 11, 2008, 09:29:33 AMNo, I'm afraid not. Rodrigo wrote Concierto Andaluz for Romeros (and maybe Concierto Madrigal as well) but Aranjuez was written before half of them were born.
Quote from: dirkronk on February 11, 2008, 11:23:19 AMWell, normally I'd just shrug and blame my aging memory, but in this case I went to the bookcase of references I keep at work and plucked out the 1984 edition of Penguin SRG. And there it was, under a review of the various concerti done by the Romeros and (mainly) Marriner on Philips: "Both the Concierto de Aranjuez and the Concierto madrigal were written for the Romero family, and the performances here are definitive and beautifully recorded." Which is no guarantee that they're right and you're wrong, Drasko--heaven knows one can find plenty of errors in Penguin--and since the Andaluz was included in the set being reviewed, maybe the typist or typesetter simply zoned out when transcribing. But at least I know where I derived my original understanding. Dirk
