Alberto Ginastera’s dazzling Glosses on Themes of Pablo Casals, heard here in both its original version for string quartet and string orchestra and its later fully-orchestrated version, pays tribute to his close friend, the legendary cellist (and composer) on the occasion of the centenary of Casals’s birth.

The Variaciones concertantes places a variety of instruments in the limelight with featured solos, culminating in a virtuosic malambo, the archetypical gaucho ‘jousting’ dance whose vertiginous motion engenders frenetic enthusiasm among both participants and onlookers.

***

“It's an extrovert, rather gushing work...The performances are suitably rumbustious”

Penguin Guide

2011 edition

“if you want to explore the full range of the composer's melodic invention and vivid orchestral palette, you could hardly better this superbly played and recorded coupling...First rate recording too.”
