Gabriela Lena Frank

A member of G. Schirmer’s prestigious roster of artists, Gabriela Lena Frank creates work that incorporates Latino/Latin American mythology, archeology, art, poetry, and folk music into western classical forms, reflecting her Peruvian-American heritage. Among numerous awards, Frank has received a 2009 Guggenheim Fellowship, a 2009 Latin Grammy for Best Classical Contemporary Composition, and a 2010 United States Artists Fellowship given each year to fifty of America’s finest artists across eight disciplines. Frank’s compositions have been described by critics as “luminous… bursting with fresh originality” (Los Angeles Times), “of unearthly beauty” (Miami Sun-Sentinel), and “brilliant” (Chicago Tribune).  In 2011, the all-Frank Naxos release Hilos broke into the top 100 classical recordings on Billboard in the first week of its release and earned Frank a 2012 Grammy nomination as pianist with the Alias Ensemble in the category of Best Small Ensemble Performance.  She currently resides in Oakland and travels often to Latin America.
