Jeri-Mae G. Astolfi is a Canadian-born pianist whose playing has been lauded as “brilliant” (New Music Connoisseur), “persuasive” (Sequenza21), and “beautiful” (American Record Guide). Her repertoire, ranging from the Renaissance era through the present, clearly affirms her keen interest in new music, which has led her to commission and premiere many new solo and collaborative works—music that has been featured on live radio broadcasts and released by Albany Records, Innova Recordings, Ravello Records’ Capstone Collection, Ravello Records, as well as the Society of Composers Inc. Performers Recording Series. Mainly Piano has hailed, “Astolfi is the rare artist who seems as comfortable with traditional classics as she is with more experimental music. … [A]stonishing pianism … her recordings never fail to impress.” Her multimedia recording of Yehuda Yannay’s Fantasietta and Ten Hommages will be released in 2022.
