Alberto Ginastera, Argentinas most celebrated composers, wrote Estancia, a one act Ballet in five movements, as a commissioned composition in 1941. It was not performed in ballet form, however, until 1952 in Buenos Aires. Panambi composed in 1936, and another ballet suite in five movements, is based on a South American Indian legend. Its primitive element is most spectacularly evident in the second movement which is scored for percussion and brass only and in the last movement Dance of the Warriors which works up to a tremendous final climax.
