El Cid - Trumpet & Piano

El Cid - Trumpet & Piano

El Cid was the name of the legendary knight and folk hero Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar Cameador, the man who never lost a duel. After a typically Spanish opening and fast movement, a slower section follows. The composer here makes reference to Albinoni’s Adagio and to the slow movement from Joaquín Rodrigo’s Concierto d’Aranjuez. The finale is fast again with lots of Spanish flair and passion.
