This 3 CD set is without parallel.

For the first time, 33 great keyboard composers are shown in chronological perspective.

The journey offers insights and delights; it is also an interpretative tour de force, each composer's style and character successively presented.

Tessa Birnie has been variously described as the marathon woman of the keyboard - unique in her genre - the world's leading authority on Schubert.

Few pianists in world history can equal her achievements. Her mammoth recital projects include performing the 450 piano works of Schubert and the complete keyboard works of Joseph Haydn, which include 54 sonatas.

Then there is her fantastic Concert Conspectus of keyboard music, covering every major development since the first known piece of 1320 - a 65-composer series.
