GABRIELA LENA FRANK
Identity has always been at the center of Gabriela Lena Frank’s music. Born in Berkeley,
California, to a mother of mixed Peruvian-Chinese ancestry and a father of LithuanianJewish descent, Frank ardently explores her multicultural heritage through her compositions.
Inspired by the works of Bela Bartók and Alberto Ginastera, Frank is something of a musical
anthropologist. She has traveled extensively throughout South America, and her pieces
reflect and refract her studies of Latin American folklore, incorporating poetry, mythology
and native musical styles into a Western classical framework that is uniquely her own.
Moreover, she writes, “There’s usually a story line behind my music, a scenario or
character.” While the enjoyment of her works can be obtained solely from her music,
the composer’s program notes enhance the listener’s experience, for they describe how a
piano part mimics a marimba or panpipes, or how a movement is based on a particular
type of folk song. Even a brief glance at her titles evokes specific imagery: Leyendas: An
Andean Walkabout and Cuatro Canciones Andinas. Frank’s compositions also reflect her virtuosity as a pianist—when not
composing, she is a sought-after performer, specializing in contemporary repertoire.
This season, Frank serves as a composer-in-residence to both the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and the Houston Symphony,
for whom she wrote Karnavalingo to welcome incoming music director Andrés Orozco-Estrada. A 2009 recipient of
the prestigious John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship to assist in research and artistic creation,
Frank’s recent premieres include Will-o’-the-Wisp for piccolo player Mary Kay Fink and the Cleveland Orchestra; Saints
for The Berkeley Symphony, soprano Jessica Rivera and the San Francisco Girls Chorus; and Concertino Cusqueño for
the Philadelphia Orchestra.
A frequent collaborator with artists in other disciplines, Frank has developed a number of projects with the Pulitzer
Prize-winning Cuban playwright Nilo Cruz, among them La Centinela y la Paloma (The Keeper and the Dove), a song cycle
for Dawn Upshaw and the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, and Journey of the Shadow for the San Francisco Chamber
Orchestra. Other recent premieres include Hilos for the Alias Chamber Ensemble; Inca Dances for guitarist Manuel
Barrueco and Cuarteto Latinoamericano, which received a 2009 Latin Grammy for Best Classical Contemporary
Composition; New Andean Songs for the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Green Umbrella new music series; Peregrinos
for the Indianapolis Symphony; Dos Canciones de Cifar for baritone and piano, commissioned by the Marilyn Horne
Foundation with Carnegie Hall; ¡Chayraq! and Ritmos Anchinos for the Silk Road Project; Cinco Danzas de Chambi for
viola and piano, commissioned by the Aspen Summer Music Festival; Inkarrí for the Kronos Quartet; and Three LatinAmerican Dances for the Utah Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Keith Lockhart.
Three Latin-American Dances was subsequently recorded by the Utah Symphony for the Reference Recording label
and has been hailed as “dazzling” and exhibiting “wit, brilliance, atmosphere and poetry” (Classics Today), and “a rare
treasure of modern orchestral music” (Hong Kong/China Hi Fi Review). Leyendas: An Andean Walkabout, performed by
the Chiara String Quartet, was released in early 2007 on the New Voice Singles label. In reference to this recording,
the American Record Guide called Frank “a remarkable composer.” Recent recordings include an all-Frank disc on Naxos
featuring Hilos, among other works, by the Alias Chamber Ensemble; Inca Dances with guitarist Manuel Barrueco and
the Cuarteto Latinoamericano, released on the Tonar Music Label; and several works for the Filarmonika label as part
of the groundbreaking “Caminos del Inka” project under the directorship of conductor Miguel Harth-Bedoya.
Frank attended Rice University in Houston, Texas, where she earned both a B.A. (1994) and M.A. (1996). She studied
composition with Paul Cooper, Ellsworth Milburn and Sam Jones, and piano with Jeanne Kierman Fischer. Frank
credits Fischer with introducing her to the music of Ginastera, Bartók and other composers who utilized folk elements
in their work. At the University of Michigan, where she received a D.M.A. in composition in 2001, Frank studied with
William Albright, William Bolcom, Leslie Bassett and Michael Daugherty, and piano with Logan Skelton. Gabriela
Lena Frank’s music is published exclusively by G. Schirmer, Inc.
