  • Instrumentation: Viola
  • Composer: Tower
"Contemporary American composer Joan Tower states, 'I never thought of the viola as being particularly wild. So I decided to try and see if I could create a piece that had wild energy in it and meet the challenge of creating a virtuosic piece for solo viola.' Joan definitely succeeded on both counts. Written for the famous American violist Paul Neubauer, this piece spans the gamut of complex left hand and right hand techniques."

  • Instrumentation: Viola & Piano
  • Composer: Tower
Purple Rhapsody is a viola concerto in a single movement by contemporary American composer Joan Tower.  It was premiered in 2005 by violist Paul Neubauer, for whom Tower has written other works for solo viola.  Why the name Purple Rhapsody?  The composer elaborates:

"The sound of the viola has always reminded me of the color purple - a deep kind of luscious purple...In the concerto, I try to make the solo viola "sing" - trying to take advantage on occasion (not always) of the viola's inherent melodic abilities."  (from the Introduction to this edition)

  • Instrumentation: String Quartet
  • Composer: Tower
Incandescent is American composer Joan Tower's third work for the string quartet medium.  It was written for and dedicated to the Emerson Quartet, who gave the premiere performance in 2003.  Of the ideas behind the work, the composer writes:

"The word incandescent is not one that I would usually include in a title because it seems to be more poetic than what I am thinking about...What I try to do in my music, and particularly in this piece, is create a heat from within, so that what unfolds is not only motivated by the architecture of the piece (which I consider the most important goal), but also that each idea or phrase contains a strong 'radiance' of texture and feeling about it." (from the Introduction to this edition)

This edition contains a score and parts for two violins, viola, and cello.  Published by Associated Music Publishers, Inc.

Difficulty: A6
