Sample text

Meanwhile, Ginastera created new music in which he transcended the harsh serial style that had characterized Beatrix Cenci. ”45 The Third String Quartet (1973) exemplifies the aesthetic transformation that Ginastera achieved in his Geneva works. This piece incorporates a soprano soloist (reminiscent of Schoenberg’s Second String Quartet) and achieves a luminous effect in its lyric settings of poetry by Juan Ramón Jiménez, Federico García Lorca, and Rafael Alberti. In his following Serenata (1973–74), scored for cello soloist, baritone singer, and chamber ensemble, Ginastera heightens this sense of lyricism.

Certainly personal circumstances played a role, since his new wife (although Argentine by birth) had spent much of her adult life in Switzerland. Another issue was political, since Ginastera found himself increasingly at odds with the Argentine military government and its suppression of human liberties. The city of Buenos Aires had never lifted its ban against Bomarzo and would surely have censured Beatrix Cenci, which pushed the violence, sexuality, and controversial subject of the earlier opera to an even greater extreme.

I like Ñatas, and a Ñata I got. 10 By this time, Ginastera had already married his Ñata, who had just given birth to the couple’s first child. The composer’s joyful tenderness could not be more apparent than in the verses of the “Arrorró” (Lullaby) from the song cycle: Arrorró mi nene, arrorró mi sol, arrorró pedazo de mi corazón. Lullaby my baby, lullaby my sun, lullaby little piece of my heart. As a quiet and reserved young man, Ginastera found it difficult to divulge his inner feelings, but often felt more comfortable projecting such sentiments in his musical compositions.
