Argentine Chamber Music: Premieres in 1966.


Several years ago we tried to produce statistics about the performances of chamber music that were taking place in our city, similar to the ones we compile about symphonic concerts that are published every year in these pages. The project, which had a first, only and partial concretion, had to be abandoned because of difficulties, which in many cases were insuperable, that got in the way and consequently made the gathering of facts, due to their very nature, which presented themselves in such a dispersed and diversified way. The inconveniences of realizing a project of this type still exist. However, we still think that it will be interesting for the annals of Buenos Aires music to offer, just as we have done with symphonic music, a catalog of chamber music compositions that have been premiered during each season, and with this belief, in continuation we are publishing a list corresponding to the 1966 season, while at the same time giving proof, due to the above mentioned reasons, that this list is far from being complete. On the other hand, only the first performances of works by Argentine composers are being recorded. In order to do this we have relied on the collaboration of the Argentine Union of Composers. As we perfect our compilation system we trust that we will be able to provide in the future more complete and exact information. In the meantime, here is a first installment, of whose usefulness we have no doubt.
