In 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.
My brother and I have been recording some new material during Christmas, that will soon be available on the website. I have recorded ‘Rumores de la Caleta’ by Isaac Albeniz and ‘Pour le tombeau de Debussy’ by Manuel de Falla. These pieces will be part of a series of combined conference with concert about Andalucism in music. Check the concert calendar for upcomming events.
