This recital will feature a new work he helped commission, James Grant "10 Blind Dates for Solo Tuba" -2013, Kendall Prinz "Diversions" for tuba and piano - 2009 James Barnes "Concerto for Tuba" - 1997, and Johannes Brahms "Four Serious Songs" - 1896 which were published and presented to him on his last birthday.
James Barnes asked Phillip to consider playing his concerto after hearing him perform on a recital last year at the University of Kansas. The Prinz and Brahms works were selected after hearing performances at the Great Plains & Midwest Tuba Euphonium Regional Conferences where he was also performing Faculty Recitals in May 2013.
