For piano 4-hands. Sonata Serrana No. 1 is inspired by the distinctly Andean concept of mestizaje as championed by Peruvian folklorist José Maria Arguedas (1911-1969) whereby cultures can coexist without one subjugating another. Allusions to the rhythms and harmonies of the mountain music of my mother's homeland of Perú abound in each of this work's four movements, with an additional nod to the colorful style of Argentinian composer Alberto Ginastera (1916-1983). — Gabriela Lena Frank
