Our next Fretworks program on Classical 101 will feature the Concierto Madrigal by Spanish composer Joaquin Rodrigo. It’s a concerto for two guitars, not quite as well-known as the more famous Concierto de Aranjuez. The Concierto Madrigal was written in the form of a suite and is based on the Renaissance madrigal “Felices ojos mios” (Happy Eyes of Mine).
