Cellist Juan Sebastian Delgado brings a balance of masterful technique and passion to the work of Argentinian composer Alberto Ginastera (1916-1983). One of the most important composers of the 20th century, Alberto Ginastera embraced both old and new in the creation of an original style rooted in Argentine folk and popular music while incorporating increasingly modernist techniques. With this recording of Ginastera’s Puneña No. 2 “Hommage a Paul Sacher”, Delgado transports this solo cello work effortlessly through an exploration of the instrument as well as a wide range of extended techniques.
Alcides Lanza, the renowned Argentinian/Canadian composer and a former student of Ginastera wrote, “An energetic and vigorous version of this important work by Ginastera. In the hands of cellist Delgado, a rendition of a very high technical and musical quality. Brilliant.”
