Visit at the Joaquin Rodrigo Foundation in Madrid

Joaquín RodrigoIn December 2014 I visited the Joaquin Rodrigo foundation in Madrid and met his daughter Cecilia Rodrigo. I learned things about Rodrigo that one can not read in any book. The information is usefull for my project about “andalucism in music”. On the photo above Rodrigo holds the guitar of Pepe Romero. You might think that Rodrigo loved the guitar but it is actually casual that he got to compose for the guitar. I feel gratefull to  that,  as Rodrigo is one of my absolute favorite composers.
