    A few have tried, but no-one has yet created such a masterpiece guitar concerto; Rodrigo captures Spain in all its glory, the orchestra De Cadaques, conductor Edmond Colomer and Paco are supreme. History: Rodrigo chose the 21 year-old Narcisio Yepes for the premier, much to Segovia,s surprise…to say the least.

    Below is reference from Wikipaedia

    Until asked to perform and interpret Joaquín Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez in 1991, de Lucía was not proficient at reading musical notation. As a flamenco guitarist, he claimed in Paco de Lucía-Light and Shade: A Portrait that he gave greater emphasis to rhythmical accuracy in his interpretation of the Concierto at the expense of the perfect tone preferred by classical guitarists. Joaquín Rodrigo declared that no one had ever played his composition in such a brilliant manner.[1] Since de Lucía was not able to read music, he worked on his interpretation of the concerto with Narciso Yepes.[citation needed]
