The fifth volume in this much admired series offers another fascinating anthology. Of the 17 pianists, the two oldest are the long-lived Cornelia Rider-Possart (1865–1963) who can be heard on an exceptionally rare, non-commercial 1926 Berlin disc, in the first recording of Scriabin’s Etude, Op 42, No 3, and Etelka Freund (1879–1977), a pupil of Brahms, who performs one of his Intermezzos in 1952. Jean Melville, a distant relation of Arthur Sullivan, plays Valse arabesque in London in 1923, whilst Johana Harris who, together with her husband, the American composer Roy Harris, enjoyed a highly successful career, can be heard playing Frescobaldi in Los Angeles.


"…Naxos continues its fascinating series ‘Women at the Piano’ with Vols 4 and 5. Virtually all these performances have a liberating joie de vivre, a freedom to let go and be oneself. Constance Keene ...is scintillating, characterful and superbly assured ... Reine Gianoli ... is vivacious and original ... with Liza Fuchsova we are in a Smetana rarity... Marie-Thérèse Fourneau is both impassioned and insinuating ... Vol 5 is absorbing and includes performances of great documentary interest. As with the previous issue, many of these are by pianists whose names long ago slipped into oblivion and the newer volume displays a cornucopia of talents."
