ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
PnOVA American Piano Series volume 3 presents new music by composers from the New England region of the United States in a world premiere performance by Martin Jones. Martin Jones has been one of Britain’s most highly regarded solo pianists since first coming to international attention in 1968 when he received the Dame Myra Hess Award. That same year he made his London debut at the Queen Elizabeth Hall and his New York debut at Carnegie Hall. He has since been in demand for recitals and concerto performances on both sides of the Atlantic. He is a prolific recording artist and his many discs for Nimbus Records include the complete works of 17 composers including Mendelssohn, Brahms, Debussy, Grainger, Szymanowski and many first recordings of Spanish music. He has recorded the complete piano and concerto music of Richard Rodney Bennett for Metronome Records as well as many chamber music discs. The latest issue will be the complete works of Franz Reizenstein for Lyrita Records and Roger Ducasse for Nimbus Records. Future projects include two concertos by Francis Shaw and piano works by Graham Hair. This recording marks his second release on the PnOVA Recordings label as the third volume in the PnOVA American Piano Music Series.

Scott Brickman's passions are baseball, education and music. Born in 1963 in Oak Park, Illinois, he grew up in Chicago, where he played baseball in a variety of leagues from 1972-1982. After a twenty-year hiatus, he began being involved with baseball again, coaching High School baseball in Maine and playing for the Edmundston Republicains (New Brunswick, Canada) of the Bas St. Laurent Men’s league. Brickman holds music degrees from the University of Wisconsin and Brandeis University. Since 1997 he has taught at the University of Maine at Fort Kent, where he is currently Professor of Music and Education. His CDs Winter and Construction, Dear Darwin and 96 Strings and Two Whistles are available on the Ravello label. The Kiev Philharmonic and L'viv Chamber Orchestra have performed his two Symphonies.

Ssu-Yu Huang, a native of Taiwan, enjoys an active career in contemporary music. Her compositions – covering a wide range of music with bold and delicate genre – are performed by professional musicians and orchestras in countries across the continents including South America, North America, Europe, and Asia. She has received awards and honors including the first Call For Score of the National Symphony Orchestra of Taiwan in 2010 (winner), the 2013 IBLA Grand Prize (Most Distinguished Award), the 2015, 2016 American Prize (semi-finalist in composition-chamber & band music). Numerous prominent international festivals have featured her music, including the Festival of the Asian Composers' League in Philippines (1997) and Japan (2000), the Guitar Festival in Venezuela (1999), the International Band Festivals in Beijing (2009), the International Conducting Workshop in Taipei (2010), and the WASBE Conference and Band Festival in Chiayi (2011), and the Hong Kong International Guitar Festival (2013).

Born in France in 1979, Francis Kayali came to the US in 1997 to attend Bowdoin College. There, he studied composition with Elliott Schwartz and Robert Greenlee. He continued his studies in composition with Perry Goldstein and Peter Winkler at SUNY Stony Brook. In 2009, Kayali earned a DMA in composition from the University of Southern California, where he studied with Frank Ticheli, Tamar Diesendruck, and Donald Crockett.
