About

Friedrich Gulda’s piano compositions combine notated music with large improvised sections, thus fusing the classical and jazz traditions. He was one of his generation’s most significant pianists and though his compositional output is relatively small, it is nevertheless significant. Variations on ‘Light My Fire’ is his tour de force virtuoso masterpiece whilst Play Piano Play beguilingly contrasts traditional classical procedure with many different jazz styles.

Martin David Jones enjoys a multifaceted career as an award-winning classical and jazz pianist, composer, and conductor. As a pianist, he has appeared at major musical centres including Lincoln Center in New York, the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and the Gindi Auditorium in Los Angeles. He has given the world premieres of works by Libby Larsen, Michael Nathaniel Hersch, and the Washington premiere of China Gates by John Adams. Jones holds Master and Doctoral degrees from Peabody Conservatory, and is Professor of Music at Augusta University in Georgia where he teaches piano and composition.
