Chanterelle Historical Recordings are proud to re-issue the premiere recording of this wonderful composition for guitar and orchestra. This concerto was composed in 1938, a time of considerable upheaval in Spain. It was premiered in Barcelona in 1940, but was not recorded until 1947 or 1948 (the exact date is not clear). It is this premiere recording originally issued by Columbia on three 78s in Spain in the late 1940s that has been re-mastered for the present CD. Regino Sainz de la Maza plays the guitar with the Orchestra Nacional de Espana, conducted by Ataulfo Argenta. The CD liner notes provide an interesting historical background for the work.
