A work premiered in Spain in this highly charged environment had to celebrate, or pretend to celebrate, or permit the interpretation that it was celebrating, the current political situation.

The celebration of a palace and gardens of a sixteenth-century Habsburg king offered no ideological threat to the Francoist State, and was in harmony with its emerging policy of celebrating Spanish history, conservatively interpreted. The instrumentation is unusual: rarely does the guitar face the forces of a full orchestra. Thus, the guitar is never overwhelmed. Structure[ edit ] This concerto is in three movements, Allegro con spirito, Adagio and Allegro gentile.

The first and last movements are in D major , while the famous middle movement is in B minor. The theme is made of tonic , supertonic , and dominant chords and features a flamenco -like hemiola rhythm. A feeling of quiet regret permeates the piece.

Ornamentation is added gradually to the melody in the beginning. An off-tonic trill in the guitar creates the first seeds of tension in the piece; they grow and take hold, but relax back to the melody periodically. Eventually, a climactic build-up starts. This breaks back into the main melody, molto appassionato, voiced by the strings with accompaniment from the woodwinds. As the movement progresses, the metre becomes more irregular.

It begins with the guitar stating the theme in the "wrong" key of B major , but the orchestra restates it in the home key of D major. William Yeoman provides an interesting discographical survey of recordings of the concerto in Gramophone magazine.

A Musical Journey Through Spain. Each time Julian Bream used a different combination of orchestra and conductor. At the request of Nicanor Zabaleta , Rodrigo transcribed the Concierto for harp and orchestra in On the album Sketches of Spain , Davis says: "That melody is so strong that the softer you play it, the stronger it gets, and the stronger you play it, the weaker it gets. Pre-eminent classical guitarist John Williams has recorded the Concierto numerous times, including on his CD and video "The Seville Concert" ; expanded The jazz pianist Chick Corea used the beginning of the second movement as an introduction to his composition " Spain ".

Al Jarreau used the same intro in his arrangement of "Spain" as a vocalese. Hall and his team perform Adagio interspersed with solo improvisations the track runs over 19 minutes. This is the 2nd movement in entirety. An arrangement of the Adagio by Kevin Bolton for a brass band led by a flugelhorn was recorded by the Grimethorpe Colliery Band as part of the soundtrack to the film Brassed Off.

Jim Roberts of Orlando, FL, has two recordings, one with his trio and another with his Saxtet, both very listenable arrangements. This reached No. Lebanese female singer Fairuz has also used the music of the second movement on one of her songs "Le Bairut" To Beirut. Also the Egyptian born Greek singer Demis Roussos popularized the song " Follow Me " which uses the same melody; the song was also used in the closing credits of the movie Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence.

In , the French singer Richard Anthony brought out a single named "Aranjuez mon amour", with lyrics by Guy Bontempelli. The Israeli singer Rita also sang a song on her second album that contained the melody of the second movement.

Electronic musician and composer Isao Tomita performed a version on his album Kosmos Space Fantasy. Egyptian-Italian singer Dalida had a song entitled "Aranjuez La Tua Voce" which employed parts of the melody from the second movement. The Limited Edition Drum and Bugle Corps used the opening portion of the Adagio movement, dubbed "Spain," as a warm-up piece.

The performance was highly praised by Rodrigo. The Cuban classic guitar player Leo Brouwer made a jazz style interpretation of the Concierto with the group Irakere.
