Concierto de Aranjuez - Adagio movement by Joaquín Rodrigo (1901-1999) - Arranged for Solo Flugelhorn, Brass Ensemble and Rythm group.
The Adagio movement from the "Concierto de Aranjuez" is mostly know from films like "Rio Bravo" and "Brassed off", and its the best-known of the three movements from the concerto. This is why:
The music is marked by its slow pace and quiet melody, introduced by the Flugelhorn, with a soft accompaniment by the brass ensemble. A feeling of quiet regret permeates the piece. Ornamentation is added to the melody in the beginning. An off-tonic trill in the Flugelhorn creates the first seeds of tension in the piece; they grow and take hold, but relax back to the melody periodically. Eventually, a climactic build-up starts. This breaks back into the main melody, molto appassionato.
