Notes & Reviews:
Loreley presents award-winning guitarist Emmanuel Rossfelder in an album of works for guitar and orchestra by Joaquín Rodrigo. The Concierto de Aranjuez, far and away Rodrigo's best-known work, was inspired by the gardens at Palacio Real de Aranjuez, built by Philip II in the16th century. The concerto is paired with the Fantasía para un gentilhombre, written in 1954 for the guitarist Andrés Segovia and based on themes by 17th century Spanish composer Gaspar Sanz. In both works, Rossfelder is accompanied by the Orchestre d'Auvergne under the baton of Arie Van Beek.
