Impressive in our ongoing, very successful Spanish music series, the BBC Philharmonic and its chief conductor, Juanjo Mena, also explores the works of the Argentinean composer Alberto Ginastera in three orchestral volumes. Not only acknowledged as a leading South-American composer of his day, Ginastera is also seen as one of the heroes of Latin-American music in general, whose enduring source of inspiration was Argentina itself: its pre-Columbian legacy on the one hand and the vast landscapes of the pampas on the other.


There is some fabulous solo playing here, not least from the BBC Philharmonic's principal flute…bring on Vol. 2!

– Gramophone

The BBC Philharmonic is in cracking form at the moment…and in Juanjo Mena it has a chief conductor capable of leading it through the dance rhythms and moods of the Spanish-speaking world with gusto and understanding…altogether, this is a thoroughly enjoyable start to what should be a significant series.
