The Concierto de Aranjuez has been considered one of the most loved and recognizable concertos of all time. In this performance, David Franzen captures the spirit of the music with considerable technical skill, and conveys an intimacy and emotion with the audience and orchestra that is rare with this challenging pinnacle work for guitar and orchestra. A wonderfully worthwhile experience.

“He is a powerful player with confidence on stage. Having noticed his forthright and excellent musicianship, it was surprising to find him somewhat shy and retiring in person after the recital.”
— SOUNDBOARD MAGAZINE
“An American guitarist stole the thunder from three well-known Russian composers at Saturday’s Vancouver Symphony concert. With guitarist David Franzen leading the way, the Vancouver Symphony sounded better than ever as it opened what promises to be its best-ever season. Franzen was fundamentally flawless in his delivery of Guitar Concerto No. 1 by Italian composer Mario Castelvuovo-Tedesco, the only non-Russian composer on the program.”

“What was apparent in his performance probably was what helped him win: articulate playing and cool confidence. Franzen handled the often rhapsodic solo passages with finesse. The second movement Adagio is some of Rodrigo’s most exquisite music, and its melody is instantly recognizable. The performance of this movement was perhaps the finest of the evening, thanks largely to Franzen’s beautiful performance.”
