Wind Wednesday: Joaquin Rodrigo - Concierto de Aranjuez, II. Adagio

So, I know this is a guitar concerto...  Actually, I think it's one of the finest examples of a solo for a wind instrument anywhere.  The English Horn (a larger cousin of the oboe) takes this beautiful and haunting solo.  The piece also features many smaller solos for flute, oboe and bassoon - and the setting where they filmed this in Spain is unbelievable.  It's good to be John Williams :)
