“Gregory Allen’s recording of my works for piano is excellent. His magnificent technique and his authentically fine interpretation satisfy me completely.”
- Joaquin Rodrigo, Madrid (1991)
Joaquin Rodrigo is the composer of the ever-popular Concierto de Aranjuez. His tunes for that piece have been used by dozens of artists, including, most prominently, Miles Davis. This two disc set of Rodrigo’s Complete Music for Piano combines an astonishing variety of folk-tinged music—truly aural postcards of Spain—with spectacular keyboard pyrotechnics.
