Notes & Reviews:

"...The real star of this show is the Ginastera, a set of charming and exciting 'American' preludes from 1944 and a haunting, challenging sonata in the composer's mature style that includes a mysterious scherzo and slow movement similar to those in his string quartets and an explosive, thrilling finale that rockets into space...An illuminating, satisfying release." -Sullivan, ARG
