The graded pieces were all performed by the eminent pianist Tricia Dawn Williams, with the album in its entirety being available for streaming on all major streaming platforms, including Spotify and iTunes.

Recorded at Cornerhouse Studios under the guidance of recording engineer Luke Grech, this publication has the aim of introducing the contemporary style of Maltese composers to piano students from Grade 1 to Grade 6, in line with the MACM's overarching goal of establishing new heights in the promotion, the performance and understanding of contemporary music in Malta. The scores themselves will soon be available to download for free from the MACM website.
