Is there a definitive score for this piece? I hear all sorts of variations and would like to be clear what the composer wrote. I don't trust my score.
There is not a definitive published edition. A fascinating article in a recent issue of Soundboard shows the two different Barrios autograph manuscripts side by side and details the differences between them.

I say it the Spanish way (I am not a native Spanish speaker). Can you imagine saying "Concierto de Aranjuez" with the English J (as in "Jim") sound?

"Is there a definitive score for this piece? I hear all sorts of variations and would like to be clear what the composer wrote. I don't trust my score."

Likewise, i'd be interested in this, too. Especially curious about the "f" in bar 47 which according to my score is a sharp but is sometimes (often?) played as a natural.

:merci: Wow, this is a great composition. So many moods. Bright and dark, push and pull. Must put on the list of things to study and work on.
