Danzas Argentinas Argentine Dances , Op. The first piece, Danza del viejo boyero "Dance of the Old Herdsman" , immediately strikes the ear as being odd. The reason is as simple as it is strange: the left hand plays only black notes, while the right plays only white notes. Despite the seemingly unavoidable cacophony of that arrangement, Ginastera manages to frame a simple and charming melody through the use of rhythm and texture. As a result of the criollo influence while looking for an Argentinian language, this was one of Ginastera's favourite chords. A piquant melody meanders its way through the first section, constantly creating and releasing tension through the use of chromatic inflections.

The Three Argentine Dances constitute perhaps the most popular work in the piano literature of Argentina. They were written during the year-old composer's early, nationalistic period. The first dance, "Danza del viejo boyero" Dance of the Old Oxen-Keeper , is based on the rhythm of the malambo, a gaucho dance for a solo male that allows him to show off his tap-dancing talents.

The second, "Danza de la moza donosa" Dance of the Graceful Maiden , begins as a languid piece, turns rousing and intense, and then returns to its languor. The third piece, "Danza del gaucho matrero" Dance of the Bandit Gaucho , is similar to the first but faster and makes use of recognizable melodic bits from Argentine folk music.
