Sunday morning music

Let’s have something a little different this morning.

We’ve played the music of JoaquĆ­n Rodrigo, the famous Spanish composer, several times before.  He’s best known for his guitar music, particularly his concertos for that instrument, which are a staple on the concert circuit to this day.  However, he also wrote for orchestra and other instruments, works which are less well known, but nevertheless very pleasing.  Here’s one of them:  his Adagio Para Orquesta de Instrumentos de Viento (Concerto for Wind Instrument Orchestra), written in 1966.

Modern, but harking back to its classical roots, and unmistakably Rodrigo.
