Conductor Carlo Rizzi introduces us to the brilliant young guitarist Pablo Sáinz Villegas in Rodrigo’s soulful, sparkling Concierto de Aranjuez.

At the end of the 19th century, it was popular among Northern European composers to imbue their works with an exotic flavour from, for instance, the Middle East or Spain.Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade is a prime example, with its virtuosic unfolding of the Arabian Nights tales.

Carl Nielsen continued the tradition with his incidental music for a stage production of Alladin, heard here in its popular suite form. With Flamenco and other indigenous dance styles as inspiration, perhaps Spanish composers felt less need to look beyond their own borders for material.
