Joaquín Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez is the most celebrated classical guitar work of the 20th century, music that conjures up the color, sophistication, and glories of eternal Spain. The founding father of Mexican music, Manuel Ponce, wrote his Concierto del sur for Andrés Segovia, and it is a work of vivid grandeur and melodic richness. To complete the program, prize-winning international virtuoso Junhong Kuang plays a piece dedicated to him – Gerald Garcia’s China Sings! – a rhapsody inspired by two popular Chinese tunes.
