"Socias and Pons hit you on the head with ethnic flavouring, the music sings tartly, then sweetly, but always with a Spanish accent."
- The Times (22 Oct 2002)

"Marco Socias delicately strums and plucks his way through the score with addicitive panache and sublime support from the never too forceful Orquesta Ciudad de Granada. Exquisite."
- The Observer (20 Oct 2002) Classical CD of the Week

Finished in 1939, the Concierto de Aranjuez made Rodrigo famous overnight. It is presented here with its ideal CD coupling, the Fantasía para un gentilhombre, along with two much more rarely performed works. The performers here, all of them Spanish, bring an authentically Iberian colouring to these works which now belong to the world's cultural heritage.

Tracks:

Mon petit cueur
Plange quasi virgo
Mia benigna fortuna
Missa ''Praeter rerum seriem''
Schiet'arbuscel
Calami sonum ferentes
Se ben il duol
Dissimulare etiam sperasti
