  • Joan Tower - Night Fields | Muir String Quartet

    15:46

    Joan Tower String Quartet No. 1 'Night Fields'

    Night Fields, my first string quartet, is dedicated with affection and admiration to the Muir String Quartet. The title came after the work was completed and provides an image or setting for some of the moods of the piece: a cold windy night in a wheat field lit up by a bright full moon where waves of fast-moving colors ripple over the field, occasionally settling on a patch of gold.

  • Tower - Copperwave score

    10:06

    American Brass Quintet
    State of the Art: the ABQ at 50



    The title of the piece is Copperwave. What it means is that copper (in brass) creates a weighty (and heavy) motion and feeling that travels in waves (and circles) throughout the piece. Another more background story is that my father was a mining engineer and dealt with copper in some of his jobs in Latin America where the family lived for nine years - hence the conga rhythm.

    Copperwave was commissioned for the American Brass Quintet by The Juilliard School for its Centennial Celebration. This commission was supported by the Trust of Francis Goelet.

    Copperwave is recorded by the American Brass Quintet on Summit Records on the CD State of the Art: The ABQ at 50.


    Known and admired for her bold and energetic music, Joan Tower is one of America’s most successful and best-known composers of concert music. Her first orchestral work, Sequoia, has remained in the repertoire, with performances by the orchestras of Saint Louis, New York, San Francisco, Minnesota, Tokyo NHK, and Toronto, as well as the National Symphony and London’s Philharmonic. Tower’s tremendously popular five Fanfares for the Uncommon Woman have been played by more than 400 different ensembles. Since 1972, Tower has taught at Bard College, where she is Asher Edelman Professor of Music. She is composer-in-residence with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, a title she also held for eight years at the Yale/Norfolk Chamber Music Festival. The first woman ever to receive the prestigious Grawemeyer Award in Composition (1990), she was inducted in 1998 into the prestigious American Academy of Arts and Letters and in 2004 into the Academy of Arts and Sciences at Harvard University.

    Walter Verdehr, Violin / Elsa Ludewig-Verdehr, Clarinet / Silvia Roederer, Piano / Kathryn Brown, Guest Pianist (Menotti)

    The Verdehr Trio, an acknowledged leader in the field of new music, has since 1972 concentrated on molding and defining the personality of the violin-clarinet-piano trio. Trough its commissioning efforts, over 200 new works written by some of the world's most prominent and exciting composers have been added to the chamber music repertoire.

    A true ensemble of outstanding players who have obvious love for the music. - American Record Guide

    The Making of a Medium Part 2
    A three video programs hosted by Peter Schickele.

    Gian Carlo Menotti: Trio for violin, clarinet and piano (60) minutes
    This DVD consists of two 30-minute programs: a performance of “Trio” at Menotti’s home in Scotland (Yester House) and an extended interview.
    The first movement of Menotti’s Trio is a delightful Capriccio.
    The Romanza displays the true genius of the operatic master.
    The finale, Envoi, brings the work to a brilliant exciting close.

    Joan Tower: Rain waves (30 minutes)
    “Rainwaves explores the motion of a wave form. Starting with a pointillistic “rain” -type pattern, the notes float upwards and downwards in increasing intensities.” -Joan Tower

    Libby Larsen: Slang (30 minutes)
    “Slang is one movement work in three sections. The title refers to the use of both jazz and boogie slang and twentieth-century “new music” slang troughout the composition.” -Libby Larsen
