"The Matthay Pupils"

APR Records is pleased to announce an important new series, "The Matthay Pupils." Here is an excerpt from their web site:

"TOBIAS MATTHAY (1858-1945) is the greatest piano teacher Britain has produced. From the 1890s to the 1930s, first at the RAM and then also at his own school, he almost singlehandedly produced a generation of concert pianists who launched an English piano tradition. York Bowen was an early pupil, but those best remembered are a group of female pianists; Harriet Cohen, Myra Hess, Irene Scharrer, and Moura Lympany, all of whom will feature in this APR series."

The APR discs have been wonderfully transferred, and the sets are beautifully presented with extensive booklets and scholarly liner notes.
