I have a 'Greatest Hits of the Classics' type boxed set featuring the Concierto de Aranjuez. I hadn't listened to it for a long time, and so I fished it out of the dark recess in which it was languishing and selected that piece. This reminded me of why the set was languishing in the dark recess in the first place. It was, and I do not exaggerate, painful to listen to such wonderful music being executed so poorly. That prompted me to go in search of a better recording, and with this CD, I have found it. From the opening chords of the 'con spirito' first movement, the difference is clear.

The other pieces on the CD are just as rewarding. Of particular interest is Villa-Lobos' Concerto for Guitar and Small Orchestra, which is innovative and challenging for a classical guitar piece.

All in all, if you've been affected by any of the themes in this review, you can find counselling within this CD.

Rodrigo: Concierto De Aranjuez; Fantasía Para Un Gentilhombre & Villa-Lobos: Guitar Concerto John Williams does everything just wonderfully and this is probably my favourite recording of these pieces - I have 5 at the last count. Personal choice as to who you like and many prefer Julian Bream's recording. For the cost of this variation and to own a wonderful piece of music I highly recommend it.

What can I say, other than John Williams' version is still the best in my opinion. This was the first version I listened to and is the benchmark against which others are compared. The tempo, emphasis and interpretation are just perfect. I cannot say much more other than it's lovely to drive to work on a dark winter morning, stuck in traffic with this playing in my car! Life is short, especially the good bits.

I heard this on the radio and wanted a copy so I researched for recommendations from experts and the consensus of opinion was that John Williams interpretation was the best.I see no reason to disagree.

I love the Aranjuez, the largo particularly. It paints pictures in my mind and John Williams playing makes this the best one yet. I also enjoyed the Hombre Gentile, a piece I have not heard before. I was not sure about the other piece, which is why the album only has a 4 star rating. The pictures in my mind are usually of a dusty road with sun scorched fields, but after reading the sleeve notes, which suggest that Rodrigo had this as a memorial to the dead of the Spanish Civil War the dusty road now ends at a cemetery. .

Amongst my first classical music purchases some forty years ago was a boxed cassette set called "John Williams: The Golden Guitar" and I loved it dearly. But they went the way of too many favourite cassettes in those days - eaten by my 1970's cassette player. I could never find it again, either on cassette or vinyl and I'm pretty sure it was never released on cd. The collection was about two fifths Rodrigo and two fifths Vivaldi plus some bits and pieces (but not the Villa-Lobos piece). When cd's came out I replaced the Vivaldi (though not played by John Williams unfortunately), but for some unaccountable reason I forgot the Rodrigo pieces until recently. But I'm delighted I did eventually get round to it. The Rodrigo pieces are just as chilling as I remember them and the Villa-Lobos is good too! This is quite simply a lovely cd.

I love this recording. John Williams doesn't disappoint. And he has fantastic music to work with. I'd been searching for the ight recording for a long time. Now I've found it.
