"The orchestral works on this program are amongst the most atmospheric and delicious that I have experienced in some time. RodrigoÝs orchestrational language is certainly influenced by his countryman Manuel de Falla, but there is nothing about it that is anything less than fresh and original.
The Castille and Leon Symphony Orchestra turns in a performance that is without findable flaw. String playing is lush where needs be, and of shimmering transparency when appropriate. The winds play superbly, and particular notice should go to the oboe and cor anglais player(s), who literally sing throughout this magnificent performance.
Rodrigo is a composer with a unique voice, deserving of a wider appreciation. Bravo Naxos for yet again mining the fringes and striking gold. Excellent program and biographical notes enhance a disc whose sound quality is first tier. DonÝt walk, run to the CD shop and add this one to your collection."
