"This is the first biography in the English language of Joaquin Rodrigo(1901-1999), the great 20th century Spanish composer whose famous work, the Concierto de Aranjuez, steadily established his international reputation from the 1940's onwards. This volume covers the composer's early years with an account of his time as a student of Paul Dukas in Paris, his courtship and marriage to Victoria Kamhi and his travels in France and Germany throughout the 1930's. The relationship of Rodrigo's life and creative output is closely charted supplemented my more than one hundred music examples, a comprehensive catalogue of works, discography, bibliography and many photographs as well as new research based on original source material from the Rodrigo archives."
