Description

Alberto Ginastera: Orchestral Works on CD

Alberto Ginastera is considered one of three 20th century composers that brought Argentina to the forefront of global attention, along with Carlos Gardel and Astor Piazzolla. Whereas Gardel and Piazzolla came out of the Argentine tango tradition, Alberto Ginastera is considered the most important Argentinean classical composer of the 20th century. Anchored by the engaged work of the Deutsche Staatsphilarmonie Rheinland conducted by Karl-Heinz Steffens, this release is a marelous retrospective of Ginastera's development beginning with his 'first period' and the folklorically influenced Obertura para el Fausto Criollo, Op. 9 (1943) as well as the Symphonic Triptych Ollantay, Op. 17, inspired by his trip to the U.S. (1947).

The Variaciones Concertantes for chamber orchestra, Op. 23 (1953) derive from the middle of Ginastera's middle period. Finally, the premiere recording of the opera Bomarzo, Op. 34 (1966/67) represents the penultimate work of Ginastera's third and final 'New-expressionist' period
