About this Recording

RODRIGO: Songs and Madrigals (Complete Orchestral Works, Vol. 10)

Joaquín Rodrigo wrote more than two hundred compositions, creating a prolific variety of orchestral pieces, songs and instrumental music. Less well known, however, are various works for soprano and orchestra. This recording presents some of the finest examples of Rodrigo’ s songs, illustrating the wide range of Spanish poetry he set to music. The composer considered Cántico de la esposa (Song of the Bride) as his best vocal work. Here the melodic line recalls the glories of the Golden Age of 16th century Spanish song, while the imaginative orchestration locates the work specifically in the 20th century. Tríptic de Mossèn Cinto (Triptych of Mossèn Cinto) displays many of Rodrigo’s musical characteristics, including exquisite matching of word to note, swift but subtle changes of mood, and his love of the emotive power of the voice.
