Penguin Guide, January 2009

Volume 3 plunges into rare Rodrigo: in the jolly Concerto in modo galante, written in 1949 for cellist Cassadó, Rodrigo’s easy-going manner has an 18th-century Spanish spirit. The Concierto como un divertimento, written in 1981, is another agreeable cello concerto, peppered with all sorts of Spanishry and brightly orchestrated; the slow movement features the cello paling against flute, clarinet and celesta, creating a very pleasing effect. Rodrigo looked to Vivaldi (in structural form, at least), in his Concierto de estío for violin and orchestra: the two lively outer movements are separated by an especially attractive central Siciliana adagio. The Cançoneta for Violin and String Orchestra is short and pleasurable.

El Nuevo Herald, April 2003

"... el incansable Valenciano [Joaquín Rodrigo] ha dejado un patrimonio de obras orquestales de gran valor. Este registro discográfico nos abre las puertas a otras composiciones menos conocidas, pero no por ello carentes de ángel y duendes... Interpreta la Orquesta Sinfónica de Castilla y León, bajo la batuta de Max-Bragado Darman."
