Notes & Reviews:

This recording brings together two undisputed 20th century masterpieces and one from the 21st, all of which share surprising stories of neglect. With its sublime Adagio, Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez has become a true phenomenon in the history of Western music, but like the original version of Frank Martin's extraordinarily powerful Guitare it suffered disapproval from its dedicatee Andrs Segovia. Echoes of Rodrigo can be heard in the cinematic romanticism of Leo Brouwer's Concierto de Benicssim, described by the composer as "a panorama of my own ideas" and revived here by Miguel Trpaga a decade after its premire.

Gramophone Magazine, June 2016
[Trpaga] is highly attuned to the different sound worlds of the Brouwer and the Rodrigo and, together with the Real Filharmonfa de Galicia under +liver Dfaz, creates another kind of musical conversation that is vibrant, exciting and revealing in equal measure.
