The success of this concerto led to commissions from a number of prominent soloists, including Nicanor Zabaleta, for whom Rodrigo dedicated his Concierto serenata for Harp and Orchestra, Julian Lloyd Webber , for whom Rodrigo composed his Concierto como un divertimento for cello and orchestra, and James Galway , for whom Rodrigo composed his Concierto pastoral for flute and orchestra.
His Concierto Andaluz, for four guitars and orchestra, was commissioned by Celedonio Romero for himself and his three sons. These two works are very often paired in recordings. Their daughter, Cecilia, was born on 27 January Rodrigo died in in Madrid at the age of 97, and his daughter succeeded him as Marquesa de los Jardines de Aranjuez.
