Notes & Reviews:

Alberto Ginastera's dazzling 'Glosses on Themes of Pablo Casals', heard here in both its original version for string quintet and string orchestra and its later fully-orchestrated version, pays tribute to his close friend, the legendary cellist (and composer) on the occasion of the centenary of Casals' birth. The 'Variaciones concertantes' places a variety of instruments in the limelight with featured solos, culminating in a virtuosic 'malambo', the archetypical 'gaucho' "jousting" dance whose vertiginous motion engenders frenetic enthusiasm among both participants and onlookers.
