The frenzied "Danza Final" (Final Dance) from Ginastera's 1941 ballet Estancia is a full-fledged malambo, representing a macho dance contest between gauchos. Ostinato rhythms maintain both momentum and tension in the movement's two main sections.
The first half alternates between deranged tick-tock material used as introduction and transitions and a nervous dance melody. The second half is a driving, percussion-jangled toccata, sometimes shrill but always compelling through its propulsive perpetual motion.
