Description: The Argentinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs commissioned a series of recordings in 1955, of which those presented here represented the classical orchestral part, which were intended for Argentine embassies. As many of the titles above make clear, the government wanted music which was tonal, approachable and, if possible, grounded in native folk and popular music traditions. So everything here is easy to appreciate and the transfers, made from original LPs (apparently the tapes did not survive), are generally satisfactory, with fewer than half evincing some distortion at peak levels. 2 CDs.
