The Center For New Music is a resident performance ensemble within the University of Iowa's School of Music. Begun under a seed grant from The Rockefeller Foundation in 1966, the CNM is built around a group of skilled musicians serving as a nucleus for the performance of twentieth century music. As such, it functions as a laboratory and performance extension of the School of Music's composition area, and as a repertoire ensemble for the continued performance of new music in general.

The compositions presented on this recording are typical of the diversity of musical pursuits within the CNM's program, and as such are representative of its on-going project. All of these works have received numerous performances by the CNM, both in its home, Iowa City, and on tour throughout the Midwest.


This title from the CRI LP back catalog has been carefully transferred from the original master tape, and is now available from New World Records as an on-demand CD (CD-R). It can also be downloaded in MP3/320, FLAC and/or WAV format(s).

We have preserved the original CRI LP catalog number for this title, preceded by the prefix NWCRL, to distinguish previously unavailable back catalog titles from those later reissued by CRI on compact disc.

***Please note that the newly-digitized CRI LP titles are priced at $12.99 (multiples excepted) and are not included in any of the special offers.***
