CLASSICAL OPUS no.40

Alberto Ginastera: “Piano Concerto no.1, 4th movement”

アルベルト・ギナステラ:「ピアノ協奏曲第1番、第4楽章」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 6 minutes

From the start, we are confronted with a breathtakingly epileptic tumult, exercised with savage flamboyance.  Unlike most South America’s modern composers, Ginastera eschews here folk-derived traditionalism.  That could be attributed to the fact that he penned the concerto during his late, neo-expressionist period.

Incidentally, this piece is dated a couple of months beyond our 1950s cut-off, but I could not resist inserting it into the list, for some uniquely chauvinist reason.  Ginastera was buried in the same cemetery as Jorge Luis Borges, in Geneva.  They both died there in 1980s, like Arthur Rubinstein…

A REFLECTION

Happy are the beloved

Happy the lovers

And happy those who can do without love

Happy are the happy
