Culture Watch: Gabriela Lena Frank's 'Hilos'

March 2, 2011 |  4:25 pm

Frank Gabriela Lena Frank: “Hilos” (Naxos)

Part Peruvian/Chinese, part Lithuanian/Jewish, born in Berkeley in 1972, Frank has selected a Latina identity, but with many obvious qualifications.

All the works on this disc are from the past 10 years and inspired by Latin America and Spain. Bartók is her model for using folk material.

But Frank’s colorful use of instruments and her melodic style are beginning to sound all her beguiling own.

Would it be possible to add the website address for ALIAS, the wonderful chamber ensemble that commissioned the "Hilos" work and recorded the cd with Gabriela? Their website is http://www.aliasmusic.org/

Thank you!
