Webmaster Notes:

This was the fourth time that Julian Bream decided to record the Concierto de Aranjuez. The first time was on "Rodrigo, Vivaldi, Britten" in 1964, the second on "Rodrigo and Berkeley" on 1975  and the third "Music of Spain, vol 8.- The Last of the Spanish Romantics: Joaquín Rodrigo" 1984.


All of the four recordings on EMI Classics were released on compact disc only. While the back covers only contain very basic information, the CD booklet is very informative.
