A search revealed not one mention of Guastavino on GMG.

But this is good

Melodic, mildly Ravelian, mildly Granadosian.

Well, if nobody else wants to talk Guastavino, I will, Ken! I just listened to his clarinet sonata on a new Chandos CD and it's a wonderful, lyrical work. Now I'm trying some piano music from that box you posted above.

The clarinet sonata is not is not as overtly Argentinian as, say, Piazzolla, but you can hear it a bit in some of this piano music.

Martha Argerich and Mauricio Vallina have recorded the Tres romances argentinos (for two pianos). It's exactly as beguiling as it sounds like it could be.
