I would go for a B. "while in her prime" is more concise,
"with the technical recordings she made " linking the technical recordings to her career during her prime. And doesnt bring about that relation.

Not too sure though, as "her" in B could also be a pronoun error, but I still find it better than A.

bhatia "in her prime" refers to career incorrectly in B. The correct usage would be : Her career was cut short in "its" prime

A. The first person is continued appropriately. B is a close choice but for the 'its prime'

Good explanation BSD.
I am punishing myself for missing the "her prime" in B.

A,

even though is the correct idiom, and B is incorrect using "her prime", thus A
