recordings of Tanner Works from his private study tapes
Composers - over the course of creating new musical works, rehearsing, and giving private and public performances - accumulate recordings of their music that they use for their own private study. These recordings are invaluable to the composer in determining possible revisions of a given composition and to evaluate their own personal artistic growth. But many of these recordings take on an historical and documentary value of their own, quite separate from their worth to the composer. It is with these considerations in mind that the following private recordings are made available for the first time to the public.
