Notes & Reviews:

The music of Joseph Sickman Corsen (1853-1911) is a delightful discovery for most music lovers, although he has long been beloved on the island of Curacao in the Caribbean, where he was born. He was more famous as a poet, the first to invigorate the vernacular Papiamentu language with literary aspirations. His musical accomplishments were less well known in his lifetime, as he preferred to write more serious "art" music than the ephemeral danzas and rumbas that were so popular as "salon music" at the time. He wrote in those genres, but with unusual creativity, sensitivity, and sophistication. The revival of Corsen's music is attributable in large part to the interest and affection of his great-grandson, the pianist Randal Corsen. Trained mainly in jazz, Randal Corsen has selected twenty-three pieces by his great-grandfather for this unique recording and given them the 19th century treatment they need and deserve.
