In the second performance of a colorful program including works from or about Spain, the orchestra Thursday night offered something I've never seen before: supertitles for a tone poem.

Joaquin Rodrigo's "Concierto de Aranjuez" is the most popular guitar concerto in the world. Composed in 1939, it has received innumerable performances, plus at least 40 recordings to date. Its haunting slow movement even surfaced as the lead track on the remarkable Miles Davis-Gil Evans jazz album "Sketches of Spain" produced in 1959-60 for Columbia. Rodrigo was never able to duplicate the success of his early concerto. But he certainly tried.
