Description
Dubbed "the Paderewski of women pianists" by the New York Herald Tribune, British-born Ethel Leginska (18861970) was an extraordinary musical personality. A pioneering conductor who broke down gender barriers (she was the first woman to conduct opera in America and the first woman to conduct at the Hollywood Bowl), Leginska was a composer of originality and power (she studied with Bloch) as well as a formidable teacher who inspired a generation of pianists. The first time that all of her Columbia recordings of the 1920s have been reissued on CD, this comprehensive aural document is accompanied by a comprehensive booklet. Works include the Four Impromptus, Op. 142 (D. 935) and Six Moments Musicaux, Op. 94 (D. 780) by Schubert, Chopin's Polonaise in A Major, Op. 40 No. 1 and Prelude in D-flat Major, Op. 28 No. 15 ("Raindrop"), two Rachmaninov Preludes, and Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 8 in F-sharp Minor.

"Sensitive, tonally splendid, with a command of phraseology that is frequently compelling."MusicWeb International
