Joan Tower: Made in America + World Premiere

July 25, 2021 | 6:30 pm America/Denver
This all-Joan-Tower program includes the landmark premiere of a brand new cello concerto by the legendary composer; this concerto was commissioned by the Festival and written for cellist Alisa Weilerstein, who performs it here. “[Weilerstein] and the cello seem simply to be one and the same,” says the Los Angeles Times. Before intermission, we explore three of Tower’s seminal works: her Duets for chamber orchestra; the fifth in her series of fanfares spotlighting adventurous women; and her Made in America, which in turns examines, celebrates, and unsettles the song “America the Beautiful.”
