      EVENT DETAILS
      Alejandro Cremaschi and Fred Sturm: “Alberto Ginastera 100th Birthday Concert”

      sponsored by the New Mexico Daily Lobo
      presented in partnership with the UNM Music from the Americas Concert Series Albuquerque pianist Fred Sturm and Argentine pianist Alejandro Cremaschi, who currently teaches at the University of Colorado at Boulder perform a concert celebrating the 100th birthday of Argentine composer, Alberto Ginastera, whose music captured the essence of his native country “with its rolling pampas and cultivated cities, its rough and wild folk dances and its sophisticated tangos.” The first half of the program will feature Cremaschi performing a sampling of Ginastera’s masterful writing for piano. Sturm will provide a context by performing music of Ginastera’s predecessors (Heitor Villa-Lobos) and successors (Miguel del Aguila) from the neighboring countries of Brazil and Uruguay, respectively. Praised as an intelligent and sensitive pianist, Alejandro Cremaschi has performed worldwide. His new edition of Ginastera’s 12 Preludios Americanos which he will be presenting to the College Music Society convention in Santa Fe on Sunday, October 30, will be released later this year by Fischer Publishing Company. Fred Sturm has specialized in Latin American music for the past 25 years, performing and recording a wide repertory, with a particular emphasis on Villa-Lobos and Mexican composer Federico Ibarra.
