An Uncommon Woman: Celebrating the Flute Works of Composer Joan Tower - RANKING 5

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Composer Joan Tower has been hailed in The New Yorker as<br>“one of the most successful woman composers of all time.”<br>Her visceral works, rhythmically vibrant and harmonically<br>colorful, capture audiences with an immediacy few contemporary composers possess. Tower was born September 6, 1938, and as she celebrates her 80th birthday year, we honor her, her contributions to flute repertoire, and the flutists who commissioned them.
