Inspired by the monumental beauty of the palace and gardens at Aranjuez outside Madrid, Joaquín Rodrigo wrote Concierto de Aranjuez. This concerto for guitar and orchestra captures the subtle colours, effortless elegance and sensual beauty of all he saw at Aranjuez - by turns delicate, forceful and intense. For a concerto that's little short of legendary, we welcome a soloist who is rapidly achieving the same status: Miloš has taken the guitar to incredible new heights of finesse and popularity.
The most famous symphony ever written also remains one of the most astonishing. The famous 'da-da-da-daaa' opening of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony has been described as 'fate knocking at the door.' What follows isn't a tirade against destiny, it's a compelling manipulation of it - Beethoven seizing fate by the throat in one of the most gripping yet perfect musical conversations ever created.
