CLASSICAL OPUS no.69

Joaquin Rodrigo: “Concierto de Aranjuez”

ホアキン・ロドリゴ: 「アランフェスのコンサート」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 27 minutes

Everything in this composer’s art is visual.  He indulges in additive, ochre patterns, overlaid with multiple lattices of light, watercolor strokes.  The title acknowledges gossamer praises to the Royal abode’s yesteryear glory.  Familiar as the theme rings, this instant classic was penned full 30 years after Albeniz had brought back Iberian music to Europe’s heartland.

A REFLECTION

Has my heart gone to sleep?

Have the beehives of my dreams

stopped working, the waterwheel

of the mind run dry,

scoops turning empty,

only shadow inside?

 

Antonio Machado: “Has My Heart Gone to Sleep?”
