“Tower has truly earned a place among the most original and forceful voices in modern American music.” — The Detroit News
Joan Tower is one of the most popular composers in America, and it’s easy to hear why. Her music’s driving rhythms, colorful orchestration, and melodic interest have instant appeal. Performers from the esteemed Curtis Institute bring an incredibly wide-ranging program — including works for percussion, brass, piano, string quartet, and flute — to Miller’s stage.
