Program

Alberto Ginastera carved out a path for himself that embodies both technical and aesthetic advances as well as a traditional and popular background. Cello Concerto No. 2 starts from the metamorphosis of a theme by Johannes Brahms to open a neo-expressionist range impregnated with elements from traditional Argentinian music. A poetic epigraph leads each of the four movements, to structure a progressive climate of overwhelming joy and overflowing vitality.

A Hero's Life is a quintessential tone poem by Richard Strauss. The identification of the hero with the artist becomes as clear as a self-portrait: a display of dazzling orchestral resources leads a tour de force through all the stages of a victorious transformation.
