Video: Ginastera--Danza de la moza donosa (HD)

Here is my HD remake of Danza de la moza donosa (Dance of the Graceful Young Maiden), Ginastera's second piece from the Danzas Argentinas. It's my favorite of the three dances. And although I think the performance is quite a bit better than the old SD version, I still find it just a little lackluster. Will I ever really love one of these videos? Maybe not.

The video itself is part of one long video of all three dances, so the visual similarity to this blog's previous installment is not coincidental. I guess I'll post the long, complete thing after the third dance.

So, no further ado, etc.


  1. Hi Kenneth,
    Very nice recording. Thanks.
    I confess that it has taken me quite some time to get to really like the Spanish pieces, possibly only because they were unfamiliar, but I am now very much taken with them and I thank you for that. The real test will come, of course, when I hear something new in the Spanish vogue - will I more readily enjoy it? I think I will.

  2. I have always liked the Spanish pieces, but it is very interesting to see if from the point of view of someone who was unfamiliar with them.
    I can also see why this is your favorite of the three. I really liked this video, and loved the playing.
