GINASTERA, A.: Complete Piano and Organ Music

The Argentine composer Alberto Ginastera is widely regarded as one of the most important and original South American composers of the 20th century. CD 1 of this 2-CD set of the complete works for organ and piano focuses on early works, many of which use folk-based elements without merely transcribing traditional tunes, and with increasing sophistication. The large-scale piano works featured on CD 2 include Sonata No. 1, Op. 22 (1952), one of the composer’s most popular works, and the Sonata No. 3 (1982), Ginastera’s last work, described by the soloist on this recording as a ‘single grand and violent impulse, with no time to catch its breath, like a dance to try and escape from death’. Variazioni e Toccata for organ is a highly virtuosic work, comprising twelve variations and a toccata based on a fragment of a fifth-century Easter hymn.
