Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Rodrigo's music for solo guitar is not extensive but represents an important pillar of the repertoire, ranging from vignettes to sonatas over a six-decade period. The 1933 Toccata was rediscovered in 2005 and has since provided an ambitiously virtuosic vehicle for today's guitarists. Rodrigo flecked his works with elements of fantasy, flamenco and bird song while Un tiempo fue Itálica famosa, one of his very greatest works in the genre, is superbly impassioned. The tender Pastoral, originally for piano, is here transcribed for guitar by Jérémy Jouve whose first volume in this series (8.570286) received a three-star review ("The young French guitarist plays brilliantly") in the Penguin Guide.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
The big works here are the Toccata, the Invocacion y Danza, and Un Tiempo Fue Italica Famosa. The Toccata is new to me, apparently recently rediscovered after it was withdrawn from publication by Rodrigo in 1939. The work is exciting and demanding. That situation has changed, and Jouve is thrilling. Un Tiempo Fue Italica Famosa is almost as rarely heard. It's a big work with a sprawling structure, and Jouve handles the architecture better than any I've heard. The other pieces include two transcriptions by the performer, the 'Canconeta' and the 'Pastoral'. Like the remaining solos, both are gentle, neoclassic pieces, touched by Rodrigo's unique harmonic language.
