About this Recording

GINASTERA, A.: Cello and Piano Music (Complete) (Kosower)

One of the most important South American composers of the 20th century, Alberto Ginastera embraced both old and new in the creation of an original style rooted in Argentine folk and popular music while incorporating increasingly modernist techniques. The works on this recording span Ginastera's entire compositional output. The Cinco canciones populares argentinas are derived directly from folk-music but in Pampeana No. 2 the use of folk-music is more symbolic. Puneña No. 2 is a tour de force for solo cello that explores all registers of the instrument as well as a wide range of extended techniques. Ginastera himself wrote of the Sonata, Op. 49, one of his last works from his Neo-Expressionist period: "Strong rhythms, lyrical singing, and a mysterious atmosphere are, I think, the characteristics of this work consisting of four movements".
