Joan Tower

September 6, 1938 -
born in New Rochelle, NY, composed during the Contemporary period
American composer Joan Tower (born 1938) has bucked trends that work against women in music composition. Starting out as a pianist, Tower was a founder of the New York-based Da Capo Chamber Players and served as their pianist through 1984, however Tower had begun composing in the 1960s and simultaneously her reputation began to grow. The orchestral piece Sequoia (1981) first earned her widespread recognition; since then Tower has enjoyed numerous residencies, the Grawemeyer Prize and a Grammy. Among Tower's best known works are Black Topaz (1976), Stepping Stones (1993), Made in America (2005) and Fanfares for the Uncommon Woman (1986). ~ Uncle Dave Lewis , Rovi
