Example text

He was invited to serve on juries of international competitions, such as the Manuel de Falla International Centenary Composition Contest (1976), the Fifth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition (1977), and the John F. Kennedy Center-Rockefeller Foundation International Competition for Excellence in the Performance of American Music (1979). He was a guest at international conferences affiliated with the IMC and UNESCO (1975, 1976, 1978), and he lectured widely on the university circuit. As time allowed, he accompanied Aurora on her concert tours, listening to her play the standard repertoire, as well as his own compositions.

His Cello Concerto No. 2 (1980–81), created for Aurora on the couple’s tenth wedding anniversary, reworks music from his earlier cello sonata and adds an entirely new first movement. As the composer describes the work: My Second Cello Concerto is organized in four movements, each of which bears epigraphs by different poets and a brief commentary alluding to the sonorous, expressive, and formal climate within which the movements unfold. I believe this to be sufficient for the listener to become acquainted with my work.

He featured this melody six years later in his Variazioni e Toccata sopra ‘Aurora lucis rutilat’ for organ. Ginastera also created a fresh repertoire of cello music in honor of his new companion, collaborator, and interpreter. In 1979, he produced his Sonata for Cello and Piano, the slow movement of which alludes to love motives drawn from his operas and Third String Quartet. His Cello Concerto No. 2 (1980–81), created for Aurora on the couple’s tenth wedding anniversary, reworks music from his earlier cello sonata and adds an entirely new first movement.
