Prologue by Pedro Rocamora.
Composer Joaquín Rodrigo's music is a homage to the rich and varied cultures of Spain. His unique creations draw from influences that range from the ancient Roman conquerors of Iberia to modern Spanish poets and writers. Since 1933 the blind composer has been assisted and inspired by his talented wife, pianist Victoria Kamhi, his most important collaborator and his life's partner.
"Hand in Hand with Joaquín Rodrigo" is the story of a loving marriage and a professional struggle that led to international acclaim. After the years of exile and deprivation during the Spanish Civil War and World War II, Rodrigo's work began to gain attention and praise from the musical world. Active as critic and academic, Rodrigo has also received commissions from some of the most distinguished soloists of our era.
Victoria Kamhi de Rodrigo, an excellent pianist and pupil of Lalewicz, Lévy and Viñes, has served as her husband's copyist, adaptor and co-creator.
