Musician's or Publisher's Notes
I. Danza del viejo boyero; II. Danza de la moza donosa; III.Danza del gaucho matrero
The first piece in Ginastera's Danzas Argentinas, Danza del viejo boyero ("Dance of the Old Herdsman") is a classic
example of bitonality. The top staff is entirely in C Major and the bottom
staff is entirely in G-flat Major.
The intensity of the mismatch
keys in the first dance is countered by the lyrical Danza de la moza donosa ("Dance of the Beautiful Maiden"). Rooted
in a-minor, Ginastera looks to the classical period with a double repetition of
modulation via the circle of fifths in the climactic B-section.
