Joaquin Rodrigo - Concerto Andaluz

Rodrigo (1901-1999) was a Spanish composer, doomed to be remembered for just one or two compositions: the world famous Concierto d'Aranjuez and the Fantasia para un gentilhombre, both for guitar and orchestra. His other works are well worth listening to, especially his many concertante compositions. As an example I have selected the Concerto Andaluz for four guitars and orchestra from 1967.
