SLEEVE NOTES:

CLAUDIA HIRSCHFELD – born and living in Germany near Cologne - is a world renowned professional organist and keyboard player: a veritable Superstar on her instrument, who has not only performed successfully in Europe, but also in North and South America too. Most recently she caused a sensation in the UAE (Dubai and Abu Dhabi) as well as China (Shanghai). Besides her work as a solo artist she has made a name for herself as an “orchestra” for well-known vocalists and instrumentalists, having accompanied world-famous opera stars like René Kollo, Eva Lind or the German Tenors and Germany’s leading trumpet player Walter Scholz on several occasions. She has numerous CD, DVD and video productions that are testimony to her tireless work, which support her reputation as the “First Lady” and “Queen of the Organ”.

Claudia Hirschfeld commenced her career as a professional organist at the age of 18 with the release of her first recording "Summerlove". Now acclaimed as one of the finest performers on the electronic organ, she has appeared in concert all over the world. Claudia Hirschfeld is also a much sought after celebrity attraction with major companies such as BMW, Coca Cola, Ford, Goodyear, Jaguar, Lufthansa or Siemens, for whom she can be found playing at their corporate events. Parties for the rich and famous also figure in her hectic concert diary, and include invitations to the homes of TV stars, who together with German Presidents Roman Herzog and Johannes Rau, are amongst her proudest moments. Adept at interpreting nearly all kinds of music: classics, dance, pop, evergreens, films and musicals, Claudia has written a number of personal compositions, some of which are also included on this compilation release for NOT NOW MUSIC.

Claudia Hirschfeld plays nearly 100 shows a year touring with her three manual Wersi organs. With these highly sophisticated instruments she is able to create her individual style incorporating the sound of whole symphony orchestras, ensembles and Big Bands. Her unique and eye catching pedalboard technique has become her trademark, earning her international press acclaim as “PRIMA BALLERINA OF THE ORGAN”.

This CD double-pack includes a selection of tracks from several releases of the last 20 years plus six bonus tracks especially recorded on her Wersi Louvre organ and heard now for the first time. All of these tracks are still regularly played by Claudia Hirschfeld at her live performances & so that’s why she chose to call this double CD “THE STAGE COLLECTION!”
