Cellist Michael Kevin Jones and guitarist Agustin Maruri return to NativeDSD with their new specially priced DSD EP titled Joaquin Rodrigo from HR Recordings.

“Como una Fantasía” for solo cello was written in 1979 nearly 40 years after Joaquin Rodrigo had written his iconic “Concierto de Aranjuez”. It was written for the Mexican cellist Carlos Prieto.

This piece take us on a musical journey into a world of extreme tonal contrasts between the dissonance and the lyrical Spanish “Tonadilla”. The cello is pushed to its technical limits as a solo instrument but the result is a unique piece of virtuosity and romantic intensity.

Rodrigo understood perfectly the nature of the instrument, its vast tonal range, colors and technical possibilities. This work from his mature days is a master piece for the solo cello repertoire.

When the “Concierto de Aranjuez” for guitar and orchestra was premiered in 1940 almost no one could have suspected the fabulous success that the work received.

“Aranjuez ma pensée” is an adaptation made by the composer himself for voice and guitar, incorporating a text in French written by his wife, Victoria Kamhi. The substitution of the voice for the cello adds a dimension of depth to this iconic melody.
