Notes & Reviews:

The selection of music on this CD is very personal; most of the works that William Howard has recorded here were written in a 14-year period, between 1827 and 1841

MusicWeb International, 6th October 2014
In summary, this well-engineered and well-produced release will be a pleasure for fans of Howard, fans of early romantic piano music and anybody who wants to listen to the Ring Cycle but only has five minutes to spare. After all, you'll get the gist, right?

Sunday Times, 29th June 2014
A thoughtful, poetic player, Howard has devised a recital sequence of uncommon appeal...[Matthews] his stirring achievement in The Shorter Ring is such as to make one think Nietzsche may have been right when he called Wagner "our greatest miniaturist in music".
