For string quartet. Inkarrí for string quartet is based on the post-Conquest indigenous millenarian belief in the "dying and reviving Inca." The derivation of the name itself is a combination of Quechua ("Inka") and Spanish ("rey") which both mean ruler or king. Tied to pachacuti, an Andean notion of succession and renewal over many thousands of years, the Inkarrí myth foretells a time when the Inca king, dethroned by Pizarro and his band of men in 1532, will be reinstated in his rightful place as supreme ruler, thereby returning justice to the world. — Gabriela Lena Frank
