Notes & Reviews:

Now part of the popular hmGold series, this classic recording from the harmonia mundi archives is available again at mid-price. Aaron Copland called Alberto Ginastera "the great hope of Argentine music." The fascinating collection of works on this disc, including his most famous work, Estancia, are performed by Josep Pons and the Orquesta Ciudad de Granada. They exemplify the drive and passion that are hallmarks of the Argentinean composer's music. The disc also includes Ginastera's lovely harp concerto, played here by Magdalena Barrera.

Andrew Farach-Colton, Gramophone Magazine
What makes this spectacularly engineered Harmonia Mundi disc especially attractive is the inclusion of the Variaciones concertantes, arguably the masterpiece of Ginastera's nationalist period. Pons chooses some extreme speeds, often pushing his first-desk players to great feats of virtuosity, yet there is plenty of character, too.

Recording information: Manuel de Falla Auditorium, Granada, Spain (11/2002).
