About

Rare and unissued recordings by Tobias Matthay and his pupils.

This final volume of ‘The Matthay Pupils’ 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Also included are recently discovered unpublished Irene Scharrer recordings which add considerably to her discography.
