About this Recording

GINASTERA, A.: Popol vuh / Estancia (excerpts) / Panambi (excerpts) (London Symphony, Jerusalem Symphony, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Ben-Dor)

For the five works on this disc, Ginastera drew upon Argentine and other Meso- and South American subjects. Evocative of native influences, the life of the gaucho on the pampas, and influenced by the music of his time, they span the composer’s entire creative life, from his first acknowledged work, the ballet score Panambí, and the Inca-inspired Ollantay, to the Mayan mythological compendium Popol Vuh, which occupied him for about eight years and remained unfinished. These exciting, richly orchestrated works abound in the beauty and energy of dance.
