Pasionate career

The meeting with Joaquín Rodrigo

Rolando Saa i the guitarits who has played more times the 'Concierto de Aranjuez'

In 1988, takes place one of the most important encounters in his career. Rolando, that felt a deep emotion that made him dream as a child when he listened to the Concierto de Aranjuez, has the opportunity of meeting his writer. During that year Rolando Saad visits the composer three times. “The conversations with Rodrigo were great. He was a man always aware of everything, who knew perfectly his work and how to stimulate the best part of a performer. He explained everything with a huge passion but at the same time he was very sparing with words. I understood what he meant. It was then when I prepared the Fantasia de un gentilhombre and outlined the Concierto de Aranjuez”.

Finally, on December 8 of 1988, the guitarist played at the Gran Teatro de Aranjuez and among the audience was the maestro Rodrigo. "When the concert finished he came to greet and congratulate me." Since then pieces of the Valencian composer have become the fetishe works of Saad.
