Notes & Reviews:

Ginasteras works combine national characteristics with neo-classical techniques. However, his work is characterized not merely by folk elements, but by a profound interaction with new compositional techniques and the extension of the color spectrum of individual instruments. The String Quartet No. 1 from 1948 is the first work of Ginasteras in which the dominant influence of folk music is relegated to a subsidiary role, in favor of a closer approach to classical style. ...The Henschel Quartets playing was as close to perfection as to be beyond reproach. Magical! - The Strad
