New York, NY – Ginastera: One Hundred, a new album celebrating the centennial of the iconic Argentine composer Alberto Ginastera in 2016, which will be released by Oberlin Music and distributed by Naxos on October 14, 2016. The album is produced by Erica Brenner with recording engineers Paul Eachus, Larry Rock, and Michael Bishop.
Ginastera: One Hundred features Orli Shaham in Danzas Argentinas; Gil and Orli Shaham in Ginastera’s Pampeana No. 1, Op. 16 for violin and piano; Yolanda Kondonassis in Ginastera’s Harp Concerto, Op. 25, recorded with the Oberlin Symphony Orchestra; and Jason Vieaux in Ginastera’s Sonata for Guitar, Op. 47. The album features extensively researched liner notes by James O'Leary and historical photos of the composer provided by Boosey & Hawkes.
Harpist and executive producer Yolanda Kondonassis says: "This project celebrates the life and work of Alberto Ginastera. The Argentine composer’s innovative style draws comparisons to Bartók and Stravinsky for the artful ways in which he integrated folk music and dance forms from his native country into a striking, modernist musical language. Throughout his compositional life, Ginastera took an architectural approach to his work that, while moving through different tonal and structural worlds, remained uniquely recognizable as his own distinctive, colorful voice."
