Reviews

'I can wholly recommend this release to lovers of Liszt since it presents much music that is otherwise unavailable' (Gramophone)
Berlioz rescued the overture from his unfinished opera Les Francs-Juges and issued it separately. Liszt’s piano version does its best not to omit any detail from the original and, in the two passages where changes have to be made, conjures up such an effect as to make us forget the alteration.

from notes by Leslie Howard 1989
