Notes & Reviews:

Kent Holliday is a contemporary composer and professor of music and humanities at Virginia Tech, where he has taught since 1974. Chua, an associate professor of music at Randolph, and Ross, an associate professor of music at Sweet Briar, first met in 1995 at the Aspen Music Festival, where each studied with John Perry. They became friends after both moved to Central Virginia in 2002 for teaching posts at their respective colleges. The working title of this CD is "A Musical Odyssey: Piano Music by Kent Holliday." The title suggests and Holliday's program notes confirm that his music is inspired by the places he's visited and the indigenous music he has encountered in various travels. One suite, "Hawaiiana," was included in a concert series that Chua and Ross performed together in 2006.
