Example text

Reinforced by his close friendships with Latin American expatriates living abroad, he developed a broad sense of pan-continental solidarity. ”48 Such a strong resurgence of identity resulted in the renewal of Latin American musical elements in his works. The recurrence of such features dates back to 1975, when Ginastera began work on Popol Vuh, an incomplete series of eight symphonic frescoes based on the Mayan Book of Creation. His selection of this topic paid tribute to the indigenous cultures that extended throughout the Americas and that combined with Iberian and African traditions to produce the characteristic cultural fusion identified with contemporary Latin America.

The title of the work no longer referred to the national music patrimony but reflected instead the composer’s emergent transcontinental consciousness. Several individual movements paid tribute to figures such as Villa-Lobos and Copland, reflecting the composer’s growing tendency to embrace the musical culture of the Americas. After the Doce preludios, Ginastera composed the Duo for flute and oboe (1945), an abstract neoclassical work that featured sonata-like structures and polyphonic textures. The ensuing Hieremiae prophetae lamentationes (1946) consisted of three choral movements modeled after a cappella Renaissance motets.

The first performance of the work met with an overwhelmingly positive critical response. ” Irving Lowens of the Washington Evening Star recognized the Cantata as the most outstanding work in the Second InterAmerican Festival. Lowens recalled the “electric shock” of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring and wished that he had been there to see it. ” Lowens continued: Introduction to his Life and Work 11 The Cantata para América mágica is about as indescribable in words as possible. So far as I can tell, it is stylistically unique.
