Daniel Sanchez, a student from the studio of Dr. Stephanie Ycaza, presented a solo recital on March 6, 2023 at the Gallagher-Bluedorn Performing Arts Center. Sanchez was accompanied by Ms. Natia Shioshvili and a chamber orchestra composed of members of the Northern Iowa Symphony Orchestra and Northern Iowa Youth Symphony conducted by Dr. Stephanie Ycaza. The recital showcased a diverse range of composers and contrasting music, including Igor Martinez’s Romanza for Solo Instrument (a premiere in the United States), a beautiful lyrical piece that showcases the tone quality of the instrument; Arild Plau’s Concerto for Tuba and String Orchestra, composed in 1990 and one of the most recent staples of the standard tuba literature; Libby Larsen’s Concert Piece for Tuba and Piano, a fast virtuosic piece that features the dynamic interaction between the tuba and the piano; James Grant’s Stuff: Theme with Seven Variations for Solo Tuba, a piece that allows the tuba to show a variety of characters and roles that the instrument is able to perform; and Jan Koetsier’s Sonatina for Tuba and Piano, which, along with the Larsen, is among the most standard pieces of the repertoire performed at this recital. The Koetsier allows the player to display a large majority of the aspects the tuba can offer. This presentation was recorded and used as partial fulfillment for the requirements of the Master of Music in Tuba Performance degree at the University of Northern Iowa.
