Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Liszt was born 200 years ago in 1811. To begin his bicentenary birthday celebration, Hyperion presents a disc of works that have been recorded, and indeed heard here, for the first time. Leslie Howard has long been acknowledged as the foremost Liszt scholar and performer in the world today and this disc is a perfect example of his tireless work on behalf of the composer.

"Wayward, expansive, luridly colourful, [Liszt] still needs his advocates. Leslie Howard is one of his most devoted: long-serving, skilful, eloquent in his interpretations of the vast piano output."-The Observer

"These CDs...amount to something more than the latest necessary purchase for completists: indeed this latest batch of previously unknown or long-forgotten items assembles into a pleasingly comprehensive musical portrait...As ever, [Howard] allows the composer's spontaneous, improvisatory streak to speak as naturally as it likes, and needs to."-BBC Music

"All of this intriguing new material is presented with the discernment and sympathy which have become the hallmark of Howard's Liszt series." -International Record Review

"The collection opens with a real find in the three-movement, 20-minute-long Romancero espagnol...The music is quite extrovert, dramatic and harmonically adventurous...Clearly tackling Liszt anew in the studio has revitalised Howard's pianism." -Gramophone Magazine
