Mestizaje: Harmony of Differences Merkin Concert Hall Act 1
Gabriela Lena Frank, composer and pianist, regularly draws on and incorporates Latino/Latin American mythology, archeology, art, poetry, and folk music into western classical forms, reflecting her Peruvian-Jewish-Chinese heritage. Leyendas: An Andean Walkabout, which was written for the Chiara Quartet in 2001, features South American folk melodies both authentic and newly composed. Toyos depicts one of the most recognizable instruments of the Andes, the panpipe.
