The Concierto serenata for harp and orchestra was composed in 1952 by Joaquín Rodrigo. It was written for Nicanor Zabaleta, who premiered the work in Madrid on November 9, 1956; Paul Kletzki conducted the Spanish National Orchestra.

The concerto is in three movements; a typical performance lasts around 20 minutes. The first of the three movements represents a group of young musicians walking in the street; the third represents evening.

The movements are:

  • Estudiantina (Allegro ma non troppo — Andante)
  • Intermezzo (Molto tranquillo)
  • Sarao (Allegro deciso)
