T HE CREATIVE mind knows no
boundaries or deadlines, even
though the rational mind often commits
itself to them. Such was the case With
Alberto Ginastera's second piano
sonata, a work to have been premiered
at the Ginastera Festival held last Oc-
tober, but not completed in time for the
Apparently, Ginastera found it dif-
ficult to compose a work that would be
equal to, or eclipse, the highly suc-
cessful "Sonata No. 1," written in 1952,
although he did manage to compose two
piano concertos in the interim.
During the summer and autumn of
1981, in Mallorca and Geneva,
Ginastera wrote his second piano
sonata, a work composed for pianist
Anthony di Bonaventure, and com-
missioned and dedicated to Dorothy
and Mario di Bonaventura, brother of
the pianist. The work was premiered in
a special free concert held on Friday,.
January 29, under the auspices of the
University Musical Society, and proved
to be well worth the wait.
In three movement- sonata form, the
"Sonata No. 2, Op. 53," opened with an
allegramente movement. Within its
framework of dissonance .lay( the
driving, relentless rhythms that have
become a trademark of Ginastera's
music, and arevery much a part of his
Argentinean heritage. This movement
introduced the rumbling bass line that
would recur in varied form in the last
movement, and also contained a con-
trasting, jazz-like section. b
The second movement was in three
sections: adagio sereno, scorrevole,
and ripressa dell' adagio. The first
section was a harawi, or mejancholy,
South Americah love song. It was
marked by dramatic silences, and what
Ginastera refers to as "the charac-
teristic vocal inflections of primitive
The scorrevole section was scherzo-
like, intending to depict night in the
lonely Andean plateaus. Its rapid
chromatic passages, which ran the
gamut of the piano's range, were an-
ticipatory and exciting. The ripressa
dell' adagio brought back theltrag
si ea~ces and ornamnited tQ~*e.'.
After the performance, di Bonaven-
tura said that the second movement
was particularly meaningful to him
because of a documentary he had once
seen in which South American Indians
played flute duets. One of the flutists in
the documentarv had been distinctly

The work ended with the Ostinato
Aymara.In toccata form, it once again
incorporated the fiery, impetuous
rhythms and rumbling bass. Both
chromaticism and range were again
exploited with highly successhfl
results. In a piece that is only twdNe
minutes long, Ginastera has maI
more significant statements than svriA
composers manage to do in an hour. °f,
Anthony di Bonaventura, a profes'6
at the School for the Arts of Bos' dh
University and Founder-Director ofh't
Piano Institute at Colby College, Mad,
displayed an abundance of technigbe
and musicality in his masterful infer-
pretation of the sonata, two qualities
that often do not coincide in the most
rekriowned musicians. The baldiig,
banker-ish figure of Ginastera was rot
present for this premiere; but once
again, his music proved that appearti-
ces can be deceiving.
