Notes & Reviews:

"Howard's interpretation, more cerebral than visceral, displays irreproachable technical and digital mastery, but it lacks character. Nonetheless, his humongous contribution to our knowledge of Liszt's piano works must not be besmirched by these cavils, particularly on the occasion of the last in the series." - Villemin, ARG

'Lost treasures unearthed... This invaluable disc crowns Leslie Howard's Herculean Liszt cycle recorded on 95 CDs... [His] performances... are exemplary with all the commitment you would expect from a Lisztian of such tireless industry' (Gramophone)

'Liszt at his most unpretentious, fresh and direct... Howard is here at his warmest, bringing out how Liszt's genius developed' (The Guardian)

'excellently played and recorded... unmissable' (Classic FM Magazine)

'Comme toujours, Leslie Howard montre sa passion dans un texte de présentation enthousiaste et précis' (Diapason, France)

'Howard's interpretation... displays irreproachable technical and digital mastery' (American Record Guide)
