Notes & Reviews:

This final volume of APR's Matthay Pupils series presents most of his remaining students who left recordings, as well as the few discs Matthay himself made. Of particular interest is a selection from the almost unknown AFMC label which was affiliated to Matthay's school and featured many of its staff. Also included are recently discovered unpublished Irene Scharrer recordings which add considerably to her discography.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
All the other pupils are represented by short, mostly encore or salon style pieces. All are interesting and reflect well on their mentor. Obert-Thorn's sound contribution and the notes by biographer Stephen Siek are of a high standard. Readers interested in further exploration are referred to Siek's recent book England's Piano Sage, published by Scarecrow Press.
