The two works presented here, Ginastera's two piano concertos, are unfortunately rarely heard pieces. However, Dora de Marinis brings them both off with a style that sounds like Ginaster himself was playing it. The First Concerto was composed around the same time as the First Sonata for piano, and has many of the same characteristics. The Second Concerto is a wonderful, varied composition. The first movement is a huge set of 32 variations on a theme of Beethoven (but you wont recognize it). The second movement is a Scherzo for the left hand alone. Then there is a slow, Quasi una fantasia movement, and finally the cadenza and the highly virtuosic prestissimo finale. The First Concerto was a favorite of Jorge Bolet, and one can easily see why!. I would only recommend this CD if you are familiar with Ginastera's writing -- the big chords, (There are some huge clusters in this piece), the barbaric, pounding rhythms, and the later, quasi-pointillistic style (especially in the orchestration), and if you have no problem with the modern repertoire.

I suppose that anyone listening to any rendition of Ginastera's Piano Concerto No. 1 will make the comparison to the Martins/Leinsdorf recording. And I further suppose that any other version will come up a bit short: How do you match the fire that Martins brought to that piece? It was truly a remarkable performance. The problem? It has never been converted to CD. And vinyl copies will run upwards of $50, if you are looking for mint condition.

But if you are looking for a very strong performance of this piece, then this recording is for you. De Marinis in no way "attacks" the piano as does Martins. Nor is the piano miked as loudly. But dedicated fans of Ginastera should enjoy it nonetheless.

In listening to these excellent performances I began to wonder if there were a sort of Argentine school of music making, which has remained elusive. (And I am not talking about Argerich's peculiar qualities) For surely Ginastera was world-famous, yet was striving for some sense of particular expression. . The performance here brings out a unique quality which is very appropriate, but hard to identify. Not so much in terms of piano playing itself, but in terms of idiom. The pianist in this recording who is apparently very well known in Argentina is world class by any standard. Yet the reading seems very personal, and one wonders if it isn't a representation of some more elusive national identity. She plays these works with no sense of sound effects, but as if it were a linguistic trope all its own. The result is extremely musical reading of both works. I really loved it, and I can't say that about a lot of these Naxos productions.

The main problem I have is that three of the nine files are damaged, and have glitches during playback. I re-downloaded the files but they are the same. I am not sure how to go about getting this fixed.

That said, I am not a big fan of the music either. I was curious to hear these concerti in full, as I am familiar with a rather cacaphonous rendition of the Toccata movement of No. 1 by Emerson, Lake and Palmer. I thought that the original version played by piano and orchestra would have to sound more melodious (it doesn't). I am not a real fan of the "postmodern" classical music style which disdains melody and structure, and strives to assault the ears. It is always a bad sign when you can't tell whether the orchestra is still practicing and tuning up, or whether they have begun to play the composition.
