Sample text

The Cleveland Orchestra featured him in their Great Composers of Our Time series, in which they performed an entire evening of his music. Later that year, he was honored during a Special Composer’s Portrait, which took place at the Kennedy Center. 51 In the midst of these celebrations, Ginastera complained that the abdominal pains that had periodically afflicted him had intensified in severity. Medical interventions took him out of circulation during the months of April and May, forcing him to miss several of the celebrations planned in his honor.

Its title character, Pier Francesco Orsini, Duke of Bomarzo, creates a garden of grotesque stone monsters that symbolize his tortured existence. Yet, unlike the heroic protagonist of Don Rodrigo, the Duke of Bomarzo is an anguished humpback, whose disfigured physical state embodies his twisted psychological existence. Accordingly, the libretto revolves around incidents of torture, abuse, obsession, homosexuality, and impotence. As Ginastera described the work in a letter to Spalding: [Bomarzo] will be very different from Don Rodrigo, perhaps the antithesis of my first opera.

49 Yet in spite of these new sources of local identification, Ginastera still recalled occasional elements associated with the gauchesco tradition. His Guitar Sonata (1976) references the primordial instrument of the gaucho and its idiomatic features, such as the vertical sonority based on the open tuning of the strings (E–A–d–g–b–e’). Although such elements made logical sense in a work conceived for the guitar, they formed a less significant part of Ginastera’s late repertoire as a whole. Indeed, more characteristic of the composer’s approach during these years was his assimilation of pluralistic elements affiliated with indigenous and Hispanic populations as they extended throughout Europe and the Americas, and the integration of such resources within a contemporary musical framework.
