This week's free download is music by aristocratic French pianist-composer Hélène de Montgeroult (1764-1836) who became the first female professor of music at the Paris Conservatory. The Presto from her Sonata No. 9 is performed by Edna Stern.

'Here is a richly imaginative creative mind,' writes Rebecca Franks, 'listening to this moreish disc, it's impossible not to wonder why Montgeroult been so neglected.'
