If anyone is under the illusion that Rodrigo composed only for the guitar, then here’s an immediate corrective: a cello concerto and a violin concerto, each as fine as their more famous sibling (In fact Rodrigo wasn’t even a guitarist- but sssh, don’t tell anyone!!). The Concierto de estio, for Violin and Orchestra is the older piece on this record, having been written in 1943. It wears its debt to the past lightly- there are occasional hints at a Vivaldian model, but the Spanish flavour is all Rodrigo’s own. Like the cello concerto, Rodrigo’s orchestral writing is crystalline and uncluttered. Mikhail Ovrutsky clearly relishes the filigree solo part. The Concierto in Modo Galante inhabits the same sort of sound world as the better known Fantasia Para un Gentilhombre: 18th century gentility, formal dances and etiquette. The cello can sing clearly above the economical orchestration.
