Rodrigo: Sonata pimpante: II. Adagio – Allegro vivace – Adagio
Joaquín Rodrigo is best known for his Concierto de Aranjuez, but the fame of this great work has eclipsed a prolific output of almost 200 works including the rarely heard and profoundly original works for violin that span almost his entire life as a composer. The timelessly beautiful Adagio from the Sonata pimpante is indeed comparable to that of the Concierto de Aranjuez, and all of these pieces are captivating in their intense lyricism and originality, from Rodrigo’s only piece for solo violin, the Capriccio, to the vivacious and nostalgic Set cançons valencianes.
