2:00 pm

Gabriela Lena Frank, composer

 

With each new piece, Frank becomes a more exciting and necessary voice.
— Los Angeles Times

 

Something of a musical anthropologist, this much-celebrated American composer draws on her travels and her own Peruvian/Chinese/Jewish ancestry for her creations, which captivate by mixing Latin American traditions into Western classical forms. A past composer-in-residence at the Fort Worth Symphony, Ms. Frank now holds that post at the Houston Symphony Orchestra, which will premiere her major work Conquest Requiem in May, with text by Pulitzer winner Nilo Cruz. Join the Cliburn for an afternoon conversation with the composer and live performances.
