Moreno Torroba: Concierto de Castilla – I. Adagio – Allegretto moderato

Federico Moreno Torroba composed about one hundred works for the guitar, thereby reinforcing his status as one of Spain’s great twentieth-century composers. Homenaje a la seguidilla pays lively tribute to that characteristically Spanish song and dance, while the Tonada concertante is in turns playful and introspective. Concierto de Castilla features a free-spirited lyricism evocative of the folklore of Castile, a vast expanse in the middle of Spain with which the composer strongly identified. ‘You would expect Pepe Romero to excel at the Concierto en Flamenco… The piece is gorgeous, the performance vibrant and passionate… The soloist in Diálogos is Romero’s gifted pupil, Vicente Coves, who plays as well as his mentor, and whose brother leads the orchestra vividly and sympathetically.’ (ClassicsToday.com on Volume 1, 8.573255)
