JOAN TOWER Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman
Violin Concerto
Suite No. 2, Daphnis et Chloé

Inspired by an ancient tale and commissioned by Sergei Diaghilev for the Ballets Russes, Daphnis et Chloé is a Greek love story between a boy and a girl that has become one of the pillars of 20th Century orchestral writing. Suite No. 2 features what is widely regarded as one of the most satisfying endings in all music.
