Recording of Rodrigo’s cello concertos

Asier Polo takes on these two works (Concierto in modo galante / Concierto como un divertimento) by one of the greatest Spanish composers of all time, Joaquín Rodrigo, who is most famous for his guitar concerto, the Concierto de Aranjuéz. Both the concertos are full of grace, virtuosity and elegance, and were recorded with the Spanish National Orchestra under the baton of Juanjo Mena. Asier Polo is the only artist to have recorded both concertos on one disc.

The disc will be released in 2015 on the Spanish National Orchestra’s own label.

CNDM (Centro Nacional de Difusión Musical)

As part of the CNDM cycle, Asier Polo will perform the evocative work by Tan Dun “Snow in June” for solo cello and four percussionists, “Neopercusión”, as well as the premiere by the young Spanish composer Alberto Carretero, featuring Manuel Blanco (trumpet) and Juanjo Guillem (percussion). Without doubt, this is a great opportunity to enjoy Asier Polo’s more contemporary work.

“An exceptional soloist”

“… we went to a memorable performance of Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto Nº2. Here we’re talking about an exceptional soloist, who had an authoritative understanding of the work right from the outset. This is not a concerto that displays immediate virtuosity, but by contrast it requires introspection and intimacy at many points, as well as stamina in the faster sections, all combined with the sarcasm and ironic bitterness that are so typical of Shostakovich.
