It's difficult to know where to begin in describing Manuel Barrueco's recital Sunday on the bare stage of Memorial Hall at Chapman University. The veteran Cuban guitarist did so many things right, and a mere report wouldn't do him justice. The results, it's safe to say, were magical. In a strong program, sponsored by the Orange County Guitar Circle, of mostly mainstream, mostly Spanish music, Barrueco gave an object lesson in music making on the guitar for an appreciative audience.

Joaquin Rodrigo was hardly a musical radical. He founded no stylistic school, had no disciples and at the end of a long and productive life was regarded as something of a regressive cultural drag by younger Spanish composers. But he left an enduring popular legacy. It is founded on the guitar--solos, songs, chamber music and concertos, above all the "Concierto de Aranjuez."

The ever-rising spiral of Manuel Barrueco's career reached a high point recently when the Cuban-born classical guitarist entered a London studio to begin work on a compact disc with tenor Placido Domingo. On this occasion, Domingo was doing more than singing. Having recently expanded his horizons as a conductor, Domingo was leading the London Philharmonia as Barrueco performed the soulful "Concierto de Aranjuez" by Joaquin Rodrigo.

Who better to capitalize on the current interest in Cuban music than expatriate Barrueco, whose discography already includes strong performances of Leo Brouwer and Julian Orbon? But if you're looking for some of the energy and edge of the Buena Vista Social Club, understand that this disc favors the more subtly seductive side of the island's music, including wonderfully liquid and sly accounts of short works by Ernesto Lecuona, Brouwer, Carlos Farin~as and Enrique Urieta.

Among the current crop of steel-fingered wonders, guitarist Manuel Barrueco is distinguished by his flair for transcribing. That was readily apparent in a nicely structured program offered Sunday evening at Royce Hall. The "Miller's Dance" from Falla's "Three-Cornered Hat" is a transcriber's staple, but Barrueco added three other dances from the ballet, and prefaced them with Rodrigo's homage to Falla, "Invocation et Danse."

The program presented by the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center appealed to eclectic tastes Sunday night at the South Bay Center for the Arts. There was a new work by Kenneth Frazelle, a tango overview by Astor Piazzolla and familiar repertory by Mozart and Brahms. The six musicians involved may not have pleased every taste but their level of playing could not have been more satisfying. Frazelle's Quintet for Guitar, Flute and String Trio was commissioned by the group.

Though creative programming at the Hollywood Bowl is not exactly a specialty of the house, guest conductor Enrique Diemecke threw out the rule book in his second concert with the Los Angeles Philharmonic on Thursday night. Under the umbrella of "Latin Fiesta," he imaginatively and cogently linked Spain with Mexico, France and even Germany; drawing upon the well-worn, the new and the obscure; explaining all to the audience engagingly and with ample humor.
