  • June 28, 2006 Brilliant!

    Ginastera was one of the greatest composers of the 20th Century. This piece is, like all his music, dazzlingly exiting. There are five dances in all; the first, third, and fourth are wonderfully beautiful,and the second and fifth are very difficult and impressive (the second contains passages of tone...

    -clusters to be played with the sideways palm of the right hand!). This book gets an intermediate/advanced rating because some of the movements are quite playable, and can be recomended to a beginning/intermediate pianist, while the second and fifth can only be played by an advanced musician.

  • December 26, 2004 Great music

    This music is a real gem in any pianists repetoire. The dissonant chords don't take away from the beautiful and often haunting melodies that recall the Argentine pampas. The pieces are short so no technicl difficulty lasts beyond a few bars; but all in all it isn't too...

    difficult. Good for classical and neoclassical audiences.

  • June 21, 2002 Charming and Brilliant music

    These are charming and delightful to play and to hear, a perfect marriage of folk dances with European piano tradition. The 2nd and last are real finger-busters, but the rest are quite playable for the intermediate student. The virtuosic coda makes a fabulous ending to a program. Compositional techniques...

    include tone clusters, unusual meters (11/8), extended harmonies, and rapidly changing meters.
