WOMEN AT THE PIANO - AN ANTHOLOGY OF HISTORIC PERFORMANCES, Vol. 4 (1921-1955)

There is a great variety of performers, traditions, and composers represented in volume 4 of this pioneering series. The pianists comprise the well-known, the undeservedly neglected, and the tragic. One such is Rosa Tamarkina, a prodigiously talented musician, who died at 30. There is Liza Fuchsova, a brilliant Czech, who can be heard in a rare 1944 HMV disc. Lilly Dymont was recorded in Berlin in 1930, Marie-Thérèse Fourneau in wartime Paris, and Winifred Christie in London in 1921. Of volume 3 (8.111217) Gramophone wrote: ‘a fascinating series…and brilliant assembly, which makes you look forward to volume 4.’
