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. Vítězslava Kaprálová was the most important female Czech composer of the 20th century, while Agathe Backer Grøndahl was one of Norway’s most respected composer-pianists. Tanya Ekanayaka continues the lineage in her own diverse and hybrid pieces.Audio from the individual volumes can be found here:GP660 Carreño: Rêverie & Selected Music for PianoGP685 Szymanowska: Complete Dances for Solo PianoGP708 Kaprálová: Complete Piano MusicGP844 Pioneers - Piano Works by Female ComposersGP872-73 Brillon de Jouy: The Piano Sonatas RediscoveredGP879 Ekanayaka: The Planets & Humanity: Piano ReflectionsGP885-86 Montgeroult: Complete Piano SonatasGP902 Backer Grøndahl: Piano Works
