On the one hand, Ginastera represents Rodrigo’s heroic character with vigorous ascending lines, incisive triplet rhythms that allude to strenuous Argentine dances, and full-brass accompaniments associated with the military (and traditional masculine connotations). On the other hand, Bomarzo calls for non-directional melodic lines, static rhythms, and transparent chamber textures to evoke the weakness (and apparent femininity) of Pier Francesco. Whereas the overarching linear structure of Rodrigo embodies the rise and fall of its heroic main character, Bomarzo inverts those relationships.
These encounters forced Ginastera to acknowledge the gap that existed between his South American colleagues and their international peers. 25 This experience led Ginastera to perceive Latin American composers as out of touch with the latest European techniques. He accordingly rejected the use of vernacular elements in his works and avoided native sources that would brand his music (and, by extension, that of his Latin American colleagues) as backward and provincial. Although his works of 1958–61 made limited use of sublimated national sources, by 1962 even such abstract musical representation proved too much for the composer.
Whereas the overarching linear structure of Rodrigo embodies the rise and fall of its heroic main character, Bomarzo inverts those relationships. The opera begins in the moment of the protagonist’s agonizing death, followed by ﬂashbacks through random events from his life that are mingled with hallucinations and fantasies. ”33 SEPARATION AND CHANGE Once Ginastera started work on Bomarzo, he spent increasing amounts of time outside of Argentina. From 1965 to 1966, he held a six-month Ford Foundation Fellowship and a grant from the Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst (DAAD), which subsidized his trip to Berlin as an artist-inresidence.
