Music history and reference volumes were written almost exclusively "by men, for men, about men" pianists. Naxos redresses this imbalance by presenting a comprehensive multi-compact disc anthology of historic performances by pioneering women pianists of the first half of the twentieth century, continuing with this third volume (Volumes 1 and 2 are available on 8.111120 and 8.111121). Each pianist is represented by one exemplary selection, with detailed information on both the artist and the recording. Great care is being lavished on making this endeavour a seamless listening experience, by matching the acoustical quality of the various pianos used in so many different venues.
