Captured on March 28 & 31, 2021
Joan Tower's six "Fanfares for the Uncommon Woman" are a tribute to "women who take risks and are adventurous," with each one dedicated to an inspiring woman in music. The first of these short pieces was inspired by Copland's "Fanfare for the Common Man" and is dedicated to conductor Marin Alsop. In Prokofiev’s first symphony, which he named “Classical Symphony,” he loosely imitates the style of Haydn.
