El compositor argentino Ariel Ramrez compuso la "Navidad Nuestra" en 1964, el mismo ao en que escribi su "Misa Criolla." Utiliza textos del poeta Flix Luna. Tanto como la Misa, Navidad Nuestra est basada en formas y ritmos regionales tradicionales de Argentina e Hispanoamrica. Es una serie de canciones semejantes a una cantata, en la que Ramrez le otorga a cada episodio de la Navidad un sabor regional. Se utilizan instrumentos tradicionales argentinos, especialmente el charango, que es un tipo de guitarra pequea, el bombo legero y el acorden. En esta grabacin la vocalista es Mercedes Sosa.

The Argentinian composer Ariel Ramrez composed the "Navidad Nuestra" (Our Christmas) in 1964, the same year he wrote his Misa Criolla (the Creole Mass). It uses texts written by the poet Flix Luna. Like the Misa, Navidad Nuestra is based on traditional Argentinian and Hispano-American regional forms and rhythms. It's a cantata-like series of songs in which Ramrez gives each episode of the nativity a regional flavor. Traditional Argentine instruments are used, notably the charango, which is like a small guitar, the legero drum and the accordion. In this recording the vocalist is Mercedes Sosa.

En los ltimos aos, el ballet "El Cascanueces" de Piotr Ilich Chaikovski se ha ido haciendo cada vez ms popular. Slo en la rea de la Baha hay docenas de producciones cada Navidad. La suite de la msica que extrajo Chaikovski del ballet es igualmente popular y se oye con frecuencia todo el ao. En 1983, en la Festival de Piano de Munich, la famosa pianista argentina Martha Argerich interpret un arreglo para dos pianos con el chipriota Nicolas Economou al segundo piano. Opino que la versin para dos pianos funciona extraordinariamente bien. Casi no hace falta la orquesta. A ver, qu opinan ustedes?

In recent years the Nutcracker ballet by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky has become increasingly popular. In the Bay Area alone there are dozens of productions every Christmas season. The suite of music that Tchaikovsky extracted from the ballet is equally popular and you frequently hear it played throughout the year. In 1983, at the Munich Piano Festival, the famous Argentinian pianist Martha Argerich played a two-piano arrangement of the suite with the Cypriot Nicolas Economou on the second piano. I think the two-piano version works remarkably well. I hardly miss the orchestra. See what you think.
