'Outstanding' (CDReview)

'Leslie Howard domine avec beaucoup de chic le barrage technique des difficultés pianistiques' (EcouterVoir, France)

Polonaise aus Tschaikowskys Oper Jewgeny Onegin, S429
1877/8; Eugene Onegin

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.
