"Pianist Grete Sultan is one of the most extraordinary artists of the 20th century. Raised in a Jewish upper-class household in Berlin, she escaped Germany in 1941 after being banned from the concert stage. In New York, she met John Cage with whom she maintained an artistic collaboration for her whole life. Piano Seasons contains her solo recordings, some of them released for the first time."
