Program Info:
The legacy of the Mayans

In 1939, Silvestre Revueltas used extraordinary musical effects to underline the folkloric tones of a film that glorified Mexico's Mayan heritage. Today »La noche de los Mayas« is no longer on the screen, but the film music with its folk song melodies and a lot of use of exotic percussion has become a popular concert piece after the composer's death.

Alberto Ginastera wanted to do without folklore when he wrote a piece of "subjective Argentine character" with his "Variaciones Concertantes". In eleven variations on his own theme, he treated the orchestra musicians like soloists.
