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 Lithuanian/Jewish descent, Frank explores her multicultural heritage most ardently through her compositions.



Review By Dave Pomeroy,The Nashville Musician,January 2011

The ALIAS Chamber Ensemble’s new release Hilos on Naxos American Classics features works by composer Gabriela Lena Frank, whose multicultural heritage is reflected in the diversity of her musical influences.

ALIAS was founded in 2002 by Local 257 member violinist Zeneba Bowers. Cellist Matt Walker currently serves as executive director, and the collective’s musicians on this project include clarinetist Lee Levine, violist Chris Farrell, violinist Alison Gooding, and percussionists Todd Kemp and Christopher Norton. Frank’s four compositions feature different combinations of these players and the results take the listener on a most rewarding musical journey.
