The small number of invitations in the collection does not fully represent Espinosa’s intense professional activity. They offer a snapshot of his interest in composers from the Americas, such as Aaron Copland from the United States , Alberto Ginastera from Argentina, Hector Tosar from Uruguay, and European composers such as the Italian Goffredo Petrassi. Mainly social invitations of post-concert celebrations, the occasions vary from the World premieres of Ginastera’s Bomarzo and Copland’s Nonet, to concerts of ensembles such as I Virtuosi di Roma and the C.B.C Symphony Orchestra of Canada. Hosts include diplomats of the embassies of Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Italy, and Uruguay.
