Enjoy Concierto pastoral

Enjoy the 2nd movement of Rodrigo's flute concerto: Concierto pastoral.

As usual in Rodrigo's music, this work requires exceptional technique from the soloist.
In Rodrigo's words: 'The central movement is an Adagio tinged with melancholy, interrupted by an Allegro in pastoral rhythm... After a brilliant Cadenza it resolves into an Allegretto for the return later to the melodic theme'.
