About

The fifth volume in this much admired series offers another fascinating anthology.

Of the pianists featured, 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.
