The works on this recording span Ginastera’s entire compositional output. The Cinco canciones populares argentinas are derived directly from folk-music but in Pampeana No. 2 the use of folk-music is more symbolic. Puneña No. 2 is a tour de force for solo cello that explores all registers of the instrument as well as a wide range of extended techniques.

Ginastera himself wrote of the Sonata, Op. 49, one of his last works from his Neo-Expressionist period: “Strong rhythms, lyrical singing, and a mysterious atmosphere are, I think, the characteristics of this work consisting of four movements”.
