[[abstract]]Argentina composer, Alberto Ginastera (1916-1983), was widely regarded as one of the most original and important South American composer of the 20th century. Argentine folk songs and popular elements of the local color were used in his works, especially the adaptation of local melody and rhythm. The Harp Concerto, op25, written in 1965, is an obvious example among Ginastera’s works. In this concerto, the new technique innovated in the harp part is quite difficult, which raises up the performing role of harp in orchestra.
