JERI-­MAE G. ASTOLFI

 

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 various recordings for the Society  of Composers Inc. Performers Recording Series. Of these recordings, 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.”

 

The recipient of numerous performance and research awards and grants, Astolfi’s passion for new music has been recognized by invitations to many regional, national, and international music forums, where she has premiered and lectured on new piano music. Astolfi also frequently serves as a piano adjudicator, clinician, coach, and master class instructor. She is an active member in various local, state, and national music associations, serves on the governing board of PianoArts (a North American piano competition, festival, and fellowship organization) and is a founding member of duoARtia with pianist Holly Roadfeldt, and of Piedmont Camerata, the resident chamber ensemble of Piedmont College, where she is an Artist-­in-­Residence. Her advanced studies in piano performance were with pianists Helmut Brauss (University of Alberta), Tom Plaunt (McGill University), and Lydia Artymiw (University of Minnesota), with whom she completed doctoral studies.
