For clarinet, violin, cello, and piano. Alluding to the beauty of Peruvian textiles, the short movements of Hilos (Threads) are a kind of Peruvian “pictures at an exhibition.” Players are mixed and matched in various combinations, and draw on a myriad of sounds evocative of indigenous music. These include fanciful pizzicatos and widely-spaced tremolos suggesting guitar-like instruments, strong attacks and surging releases suggesting zampona panpipes and quena flutes, glissandi and scratch tones suggesting vocal coloristic effects, and so forth. Five movements: 1. Canto del Altiplano (Songs of the Highlands) 2. Zapatos de Chincha (Shoes of Chincha) 3. Charanguista Viejo (Old Charango Player) 4. Danza de los Diablos 5. Zumballyu (Spinning Top) 6. Juegos 7. Yaravillosa 8. Bombines (Bowler Hats) — Gabriela Lena Frank
