About

Wanda Landowska has achieved such fame for her 20th-century revival of the harpsichord that it is sometimes forgotten that she was a very fine pianist and continued to play music of the classical period on modern piano.

This set brings together, for the first time, all her recordings on that instrument. In their understanding of period style, ornamentation and appropriate instrumental colour, and above all in their ability to get to the emotional heart of the matter, these recordings reveal Landowska’s playing to be as valid now, in our historically informed time, as it ever was.
