Notes & Reviews:
As of 2013, following a lapse of some ten years, the famed Erato imprint has been reborn. - Magda Tagliaferro (1893-1986), was a Brazilian-born pianist of French descent. She was both a brilliant artist and indefatigable educator (she is considered the creator of what is now termed the "master class"). - This collection of recordings is receiving its first release on CD!
American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Tagliaferro was born in 1893 in Brazil to French parents. Her most influential teacher was Cortot, and she toured briefly with FaurT when he was director of the Paris Conservatoire. She played actively into her 90s and was highly regarded all her life. These recordings were made in 1961. The sound is more than acceptable and the booklet just a brief translated page. She was sought after by composers to give the premiere of their new compositions, which were sometimes dedicated to her.
