I'm sorry! I just did a more careful comparison, and I am getting 
Utopia small caps in the titles. In fact, this seems to work even 
better with Fourier allowing bold small caps in the title when CM does 

However, using Fourier, $\mathbf{T}$ is bold, but is upright, and 
$\boldsymbol{T}$ is not bold, but is italic.

I haven't had time yet to investigate the the bm package as noted by

I intend to in the next few days.

Try the following code and see a number of differences with and without 
the fourier package. I seem to remember that some experimentation on my 
part showed that the amsart document class allows you to override 
certain features of its standard defined style, but not others, and 
it's not always obvious why you can or why you can't.
