Notes & Reviews:

Jamaican-born Canadian pianist Maria Corley gave her first public performance at the age of eight. She has studied at the University of Alberta in Edmonton and also at Juilliard where she was a student of Gyorgy Sandor. Of this CD she writes, "Ethnicity and gender are not determining factors of ability, and if not for the potent combination of sexism and racism, perhaps more of the music on this recording might be better known... these are first and foremost fine pieces of music, regardless of race and gender of their creators.
