ORREGO-SALAS, Juan. A Recollection of Alberto Ginastera on the Occasion of the Centenary of his Birth in Buenos Aires on April 11, 1916. Rev. music. chil. [online]. 2016, vol.70, n.225, pp.105-107. ISSN 0716-2790.

The Chilean composer Juan Orrego-Salas, recipient of the National Arts Prize in Music 1992, recollects his friendship with Alberto Ginastera since 1945, when both and their families resided in New York as recipients of awards of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. Besides Orrego-Salas gives an account of subsequent occasions when both were in direct or indirect contact-music festivals, summer schools, first performances of Ginastera’s works and institutional projects. Orrego-Salas also discusses the stylistic tendencies in Ginastera’s oeuvre, as they appear in some representative works, along with the aesthetic value of his music.

Keywords : classical music in Chile; Argentina and Latin America.
