Petroushskates is one of Joan Tower's “seamless” works..that is, the sections link without strong demarcations…and one of her most popular. It draws inspiration from the smooth flow of figure skating and pays homage to Stravinsky, one of the foremost influences on Tower's musical thought. In this work, which was written for the tenth anniversary of the Da Capo Chamber Players, the winds and strings frequently combine in pairs, their voices gliding synchronously like pairs of skaters. Recorded by the Da Capo Chamber Players on CRI CD 582.
