Rodrigo Concerto Performance with Peter Stark and the DYO at Buxton Octagon

It is a delight to work with Orchestras and I have enjoyed performances with the DYO, DCO and the Nottingham based Boots Orchestra. I am happy to provide a range of Concertos including:

Concerto in D  by Antonio Vivaldi

Serenade for Guitar and Strings by Malcome Arnold

Concierto de Aranjuez by Joaquin Rodrigo

Reviews and comments:-

…a performance full of grace and poise –

Mike Wheeler Derby Evening Telegraph

James Rippingale’s performance of Rodrigo’s Guitar Concerto was both accomplished and musically assured; it was a pleasure to work with a soloist so sensitive.

– Peter Stark Conductor

The guitar cadenza was both awesome and flawless – what a feast. The gentle Allegro ended this wonderful concerto – the final movement having a complex, but delicate rhythm throughout in keeping with Rodrigo’s suggestion that the concerto “should only be as strong as a butterfly….a suggestion of times past.” Lovely.

– Martin Bisknell – Buxton Fringe Review
