The present release is a commemorative edition of two albums by the pianist Claudette Sorel featuring selected works for solo piano and three American Piano Concerti. Claudette Sorel was one of America’s most notable female pianists of all time. Born in 1932 in Paris, upon the Nazi invasion of France she moved with her family to New York, where she studied at the Juilliard School with Olga Samaroff-Stokowski. She was renowned throughout her live as a brilliant pianist, educator, author, philanthropist, and advocate for women in music. “Claudette Sorel is in the front-rank of American pianists... She has spirit, tone and technique. She can just about make the piano sit up and do tricks... Her playing has amazing personality.” (Harold C. Schonberg, The New York Times)
