Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I had the vinyl of this in the 80s, so I don't know what the other reviewer means about the de-squeaking of the string noise. Weird thought though; as a guitarist I kinda like them there squeaks, paints a picture of the left hand technique in the mind's eye.
My vinyl version is the finest Aranjuez I've heard, of many, and it is indeed a glorious experience. Williams is something else here, deserving of his lofty reputation, and this is certainly one of the performances that cemented it.
Find the vinyl if you can, it's warm and analog and altogether a lovely experience.
The Concierto de Aranjuez by Rodrigo, and as performed by the one and only John Williams, is one of my all time favorite pieces. I've listened to it multiple times and get chills every time. IF you love Spanish guitar music, I do believe you'll fall in love with this.
I have the previously released version of this on CD, recorded on analog equipment and lacks volume but it is superbly performed; if it were digitally remastered, I would give it 5 stars! Beautiful piece, excellent conducting!
