Cambria is pleased to present Realms of Gold – The Recorded Legacy of American Concert Pianist William Corbett-Jones in honor of his 93rd birthday. Spanning nearly five decades, the recordings are taken from never-before released live concert performances by Corbett-Jones. He is assisted in several performances by violinists Jassen Todorv, Jacob Krachmalnick, Hansheinz Schneeberger and Camilla Wicks; cellist Claude Starck and Robert Sayre; flutist Peter Lukas Graf; pianist Sylvia Jenkins; and the San Francisco State University Orchestra.

Corbett-Jones has the rare distinction among pianists of being a recitalist, a soloist with numerous orchestras, and a consummate chamber musician and concert artist for the last seven decades. A world traveler, he has performed, taught, and visited in some sixty countries in Europe, Asia, the Mideast, Africa, Australia and New Zealand, He has performed with legendary 20th -century concert artists Joseph Szigeti, Mischa Elman, Tossy Spivakovsky, Henri Temianka, Camilla Wicks, and for many years with The Alma Trio. Corbett-Jones was also a member of The California Trio, The Crown Chamber Players, and Villa Sinfonia. Equally comfortable with great concert works for solo piano including Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin, Haydn, Mozart, Haydn, Schubert, Schumann, Ravel, Busoni, and Bartók, Corbett-Jones also mastered the standard repertoire for violin, viola, trios, quartets, and quintets.

Throughout his career, Corbett-Jones has been an advocate for contemporary music performing many world premieres including works by Roger Nixon, Kirke Mechem, Phelps Dean Whitter, and John Sharpley. Born in the Philippines in 1929, he lived on several military bases as a child, and came of age in the San Francisco-Bay Area to experience the Bohemian life among the starving artists of the North Beach Beat generation.
