'This, at last, is the comprehensive collection of late Liszt for which we've waited' (Fanfare, USA)

'Howard's performances are quite marvellous: scrupulously prepared and enlightened by this performer's high degree of spontaneity. Hyperion's recording captures every nuance' (CDReview)

Romance oubliée 'Vergessener Romanze', S527
composer
1880

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Romance oubliée resulted from a publisher’s request to be permitted to reprint an earlier Romance, itself a transcription of Liszt’s little-known song Ô pourquoi donc. Liszt turned down the request and sent instead a refashioning of the material—now a nostalgic glance at times past, in the same spirit as his four Valses oubliées—in four versions: for viola, violin or cello and piano, as well as for solo piano.
