This sumptuous guitar concerto, written by the great Castelnuovo-Tedesco on the eve of World War II, quickly became a modern classic, almost approaching the popularity of Rodrigo's 'Concierto de Aranjuez.' Its appreciation has grown with the ensuing years and it is now considered a 20th-century classic. Don't miss this lyrical masterpiece! This deluxe 2CD set includes a slow-tempo practice version to help you get up to speed with the concerto.
Includes an authoritative, newly engraved solo part printed on high-quality ivory paper; a digital stereo compact disc featuring a complete performance of the concerto with orchestra and soloist, and a second performance minus you, the soloist; and a second compact disc containing a full-speed version of the complete version as well as a special -20% slow-tempo version of the accompaniment for practice purposes. The concerto is voluminously indexed for your practice and performance convenience.
