About

Joan Tower creates music which is bold, colourful and communicative, her list of commissions and awards providing ample evidence of her ability to engage performers and audiences alike.

Emotional intensity characterizes Stroke, which vividly conveys a stroke victim’s dramatic turmoil while also offering a vision of hope.

The Violin Concerto, selected for the final round of the Pulitzer Prize in Music, is both a virtuoso showcase and a lyrical vehicle for the soloist, its conversational cadenzas representing a poignant exchange between the living and the departed.

The deceptively titled Chamber Dance alternates huge blocks of sound with intimate solos and duets in an ever-evolving riot of colors.

Joan Tower’s 'Made in America' (8559328) won three Grammy awards.
