Notes & Reviews:

Certainly the most glamorous of the Matthay students, Harriet Cohen was also the most extrovert and to the general public was known as a socialite as much as a pianist. Her friends included George Bernard Shaw and Ramsay MacDonald and she became notorious as the lover of the married Arnold Bax. Cohen's repertoire favored Bach and contemporary music (much of it dedicated to her) rather than the more popular romantic repertoire. Few of her recordings have been reissued on CD so this will be an eagerly awaited set. It includes the first ever (acoustic) recording of Bach's D minor concerto, and the later post-war remake, and also several of the works Bax wrote for her.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
Harriet Cohen (1895-1967) was for decades a fixture in British musical life both as a pianist and celebrity. A strikingly beautiful woman, she was involved in a long series of amorous relationships with public figures, notably a long-term adulterous affair with the composer Arnold Bax. In the 1930s and 40s she was a prominent spokesman for European Jewry. While she toured in the United States most of her recordings are scarce here, making this comprehensive collection of her solo and orchestral performances particularly welcome. She was, through it all, a thoroughly serious and committed, if wayward, musician.
