Joaquín Rodrigo: Music, Life and Literature

Raymond Calcraft and Elizabeth Matthews are the authors of the recently published book, Joaquín Rodrigo Voice & Vision, which contains the first translations into English of many of the composer’s most important writings. The talk will be illustrated with readings from the book, together with several examples of music by Rodrigo himself, and by others, set within the context of the life and times of the composer.
