Field Notes: Tuba Music from Iowa

Ever since John Manning’s appointment to the faculty of the University of Iowa, he has been amazed and impressed with the breadth and depth of talent within the state. All of the music on this recording has some connection to Iowa, and Manning is quite proud of the quality and variety of the program. Some of the music was composed by former students (Claire Sievers and Katharine Wohlman), two works were composed or arranged by Iowan Jerry Owen, two works were commissioned by Manning himself specifically for this recording (York and Pintos), and one work he composed (Cheese Spread).
