"[Castro's] music, neo-classical in style, displays technical mastery in the handling of form, orchestration and counterpoint, together with an awareness of new developments and a respect for the past. Although clear and straightforward, his work is capable of expressive depth. The G major Piano Sonata (1931), his first major work, is considered one of the most personal and authentic Argentinian works of the period. The ballet Falarka (1951), on a scenario by Jorge de Obeita, is his masterpiece." Susana Salgado in Grove Music Online.
