LIVE RECORDED CONCERTS

St. Cecilia Orchestra Presents
“A Tribute to Alberto Ginastera”

Conducted by Peter Bay with featured guest soloist Flutist Lisa Hansen in Ginastera’s Impresiones de la puña for flute and orchestra. Also, on the program was Ginastera’s Variaciones Concertantes for orchestra, and his harp concerto, featuring harpist Nancy Allen.

Selected recordings from live concert:

1) Quena

2) Canción

3) Danza

“The flute piece… Is from the Argentinian composer’s early nationalistic period. A very lush and romantic work, it was a perfect vehicle for Hansen’s flawless playing. She gets as lovely as sound as you’ll ever hear from a flute, and her playing is particularly appealing in the lower register.”

“Hansen was the exemplary soloist in the opening three Impresiones de la Puna for Flute and Strings, Ginastera’s musical impressions of the desert region of northwestern Argentina. Hansen was right at home with these folk like melodies, written when the composer was only 18. She soared lyrically on air for the first two movements and bounced nicely in the South American dance of the third movement.”
