Alongside Alfred Cortot and Marguerite Long, Lazare-Lévy was a renowned pedagogue of the first half of the twentieth century. But since he didn't make a recording career, his name is somewhat forgotten by the musical world today. For the 40th anniversary of his death and with the support of his family, we have decided to release the present tribute including a number of previously unissued radio recordings. On the same occasion we decided to include in this set three of his most famous pupils (Monique Haas, Clara Haskil et Solomon) illustrating thus the so-called "Ecole Lazare-Lévy".
