Maud Powell Favorites
American violinist Maud Powell (1867-1920) pioneered the violin recital in North America and won international recognition for her artistry. This collection contains more than 40 wonderful concert pieces: Powell’s own transcriptions and works dedicated to her, including the entire contents of Rachel’s “American Virtuosa: Tribute to Maud Powell” recording. Many of these works have been out of print for more than a century or have never been printed. The collection also includes generous program notes about each composer by Powell biographer Karen Shaffer. Rachel served as Music Advisor and Editor.
