'Outstanding' (CDReview)

'Leslie Howard domine avec beaucoup de chic le barrage technique des difficultés pianistiques' (EcouterVoir, France)
Although Tchaikovsky was not so kind in his later references to Liszt, it is clear that he owed much to Liszt’s example as a composer, as well as to his generosity in setting up a production of Eugene Onegin at Weimar. The transcription of the Polonaise makes some very interesting deviations from the shape of the original, especially in a brilliant variation towards the close.
