Famous Argentinean composer
The piano music is at once percussive, virtuosic and lyrical, using musical forms ranging from full-scale sonatas to exquisite miniatures - preludes, dances and the work with which Petchersky's disc begins, the beautiful, songful Milonga, Op. 3. BBC Music Magazine. '...this is music of immediate communication, and for that attribute alone deserves to be played, heard, and savored. This disc of Ginastera's piano music runs the gamut from miniature to monster, early work to final statement. American Record Guide. Ginastera was a prolific Argentine composer that explored the synthesis of Latin American dance with the tradition of Western Classical Music. In this CD that includes so many of his piano works, folk idioms are at the forefront of his thinking and often made explicit by the music. Ginastera explores the piano as a percussive as well as a melodic instrument, also showing its Jazz influences. His piano music is most characteristic of his quest to unite musical nationalism with modernity and tradition, showing a supremely imaginative way in which he draws the various influences together, producing works of the utmost finesse and originality. 'Alma Petchersky presents these pieces compellingly and straightforwardly, with her rhythmic integrity in the various dance and motor elements allowing this music to really bite, snap, and bounce.' American Record Guide.
