Ranging from the 18th century to the music of our time, this collection of critically acclaimed recordings explores the significant contribution to solo piano repertoire made by a wide variety of women composers. These rare and important pieces include the works of the celebrated pianist Anne-Louise Brillon de Jouy and of Hélène de Montgeroult, whose sonatas are distinctive additions to the Classical and early Romantic periods. Maria Szymanowska's deft dances contrast with the fearsome demands of Teresa Carreño, herself a great virtuoso. Vítezslava Kaprálová was the most important female Czech composer of the 20th century, while Agathe Backer Grondahl was one of Norway's most respected composer-pianists. Tanya Ekanayaka continues the lineage in her own diverse and hybrid pieces.
