"...and even when Ginastera gives you one piece with a close family likeness to another, you listen with a sense of renewal thnks to performances by Mariangela Vacatello of a super zest, brio and imaginative scope... she has technique in spades, making her a front-runner with Argerich's legendary live Three Argentinian Dances... no praise could be high enough for Vacatello's achievement."
