Argentinian Songs



Raúl Giménez presents a panorama of popular twentieth century songs by composers of his native Argentina. These songs have their roots in Argentinian folk-idioms and in the simple lyricism of country life, and most are written 'in popular style'. The fresh, rustic harmonies of Buchardo complement the strongly rhythmic elements reflecting popular dance rhythms which characterize the selections of Guastavino. This reverence for tradition is continued in the songs of Ginastera with their clear references to fast dance rhythms, but it is overlayed by a melodic inventiveness which is essentially modern.
