Notes & Reviews:

"With this release, Leslie Howard gets an 'A' for bravery. This is his second release with the title 'Lizst New Discoveries', part of a monumental project to record the complete works of Franz Lizst. It is a mark of true scholarship. Consider this recording if you can't get enough Liszt or are a scholar." - Bolen, American Record Guide

'Howard's playing is so refined that even the almost impossible passages of the Concerto are made to seem easy and this is simply the best recorded piano sound I've heard in years' (The Times)

'So we learn more about this extraordinary composer, thanks to that rare combination of Howard's scholarly musicianship ... and fearless keyboard technique, allied to the ongoing commitment of Hyperion Records - without which the entire musical world would be so much the poorer' (International Record Review)

'his stylistic understanding is always impeccable, and as recorded here his Steinway makes a warmly appealing sound' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Leslie Howard is once again an ardent and reflective champion in both his playing and in his brilliantly informative essay; he also promises further discoveries. Hyperion's sound and presentation is immaculate as ever' (Gramophone)

'no-one fascinated by Liszt, or by Romanticism at fever pitch, will tolerate being without this. Howard's Steinway sounds like it's in your living room - whispering, crooning, or thundering - up close and near. Liszt lives! Long live Liszt!' (Fanfare, USA)
