Abstract

There were two major works in this classical guitar recital. One was a Baroque suite for organ by the composer Dietrich Buxtehude that had been transcribed for classical guitar. The other, the Aranjuez Concerto, was a full concerto, composed for classical guitar and orchestra, by Joaquin Rodrigo. The pieces were performed with a piano reduction of the orchestral part. These two pieces represented a wide range of musical styles that can be expressed through the classical guitar -a more transparent solo composition, as well as an entire concerto for guitar and accompaniment.
