Joan Tower Sixth Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman (for orchestra) (2014)

Baltimore Symphony, Marin Alsop conductor

…this sixth one is not really a “fanfare” at all, but basically a short, fully worked-out overture. It is an attractive work in the bustling American style of Michael Torke or John Adams (chugging, repeated notes as a unifying element), but with rapid shifts in texture. Tower is in many ways a worthy heir to Copland, and I am certain her work will someday be as firmly entrenched in the repertoire.
