Catalogue Number: 12I073
Description: Two full-length ballet scores from Ginastera's early, nationalist period when he used authentic Argentinian folk and popular elements. Panambí (1937) is exotically scored, as befits its Guaraní Indian setting - a romantic and supernatural legend of love and magic. Estancia (1941), set on a cattle ranch, evokes the vast distances and loneliness of the pampas. London Symphony Orchestra; Gisèle Ben-Dor. Original 1997 Conifer Classics release.
