Joan Tower’s Made in America began as an effort by 65 small orchestras around the U.S. to pool their resources to commission a work from a major American composer. The piece — a colorful fantasy on “America the Beautiful”—premiered in Glens Falls, New York in 2005 and has been played more than 80 times since then in all 50 states. Leonard Slatkin leads the Nashville Symphony Orchestra in the work’s first recording. The disc also includes Tower’s Concerto for Orchestra and Tambor.
