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 (HH 1217) Gramophone wrote: ‘a fascinating series…and brilliant assembly, which makes you look forward to volume 4.’

"...This series throws a light on great keyboard interpreters, many of whom will no doubt be new to most people. That’s the value of such series with Naxos continuing its well established tradition of seeking out historical recordings of real interest and presenting them to the listening public at a great price. This is a disc of particular value."

Steve Arloff - MusicWeb-International.com - July 2012


"Naxos has reached volume 4 in is its series of historic reissues of women pianists…here are some powerful pianists who can knock the male contender aside, For instance, there’s Constance Keene playing Beethoven’s 32 Variations with great conviction, a hard-driven Liszt tossed off by Gina Bachauer and rarities such as the Rosenthal Papillons seductively performed by Winifred Christie. It’s worth seeking out the first three volumes to supplement this feast of pianistic fireworks!"
