A landmark recording, this is the first CD to date containing both Piano Concerti by Ginastera. Dramatic rhythmic energy, magical atmospheres, and fascinating lyricism combined in a magnificent tour de force where the orchestra and the soloist shine with splendor. These two piano concerti are milestones in the history of the modern piano concerto.

De Marinis is partnered hand in glove by Julio Malaval ... for whom the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra plays head-and-shoulders above the average heard on a lot of their 140+ Naxos and Marco Polo discs ... [Ms. De Marinis] is comparably incisive as well as considerably more poetic [than Oscar Tarrago in his recording of the first concerto.] ROGER DETTMER. Classical CD Review
