  1. Dear Mr. Montague, I love Joan Tower’s music but my favorite is the Concerto. I like the end of the Piano Concerto the most. ��. From Lorelei

  2. Dear Mr. Montague,

    This is Pearce Winford. Joan Tower composed Flute Concerto. It is very relaxing. You can learn a lot about it and how to play it.

  4. I thought For The Uncommon Woman sounded like Christmas music, Jurassic park music, and Alien music all mixed together. I like to listen to Piano Concerto because it's peaceful. ARI
