London Piano Festival co-director Katya Apekisheva played the famous Danzas argentinas, Op. 2, in the 2018 edition of the festival. It’s one of Ginastera’s early gems, mixing folkloristic elements with complex harmonies over a virtuosic texture. Here is the languid second part, Danza de la moza donosa (‘Dance of the Graceful Maiden’).
