Programme Note

Joan Tower’s ballet Stepping Stones was commissioned by the Milwaukee Ballet in 1991.

Composer Note:

As a composer, I’ve always thought of myself as a closet choreographer. Texture, space, speed, direction, all the words that apply to dance also apply to music.

—Joan Tower

Note:
A recorded version for two-pianos and synthetic percussion exists.
