Reviews

'These clearly recorded discs should find a place in every music library in the land!' (Gramophone)

'Another abundant, revelatory, superb instalment in what is looming as perhaps the most adventurous, most consistently realized, and grandest project in recording history' (Fanfare, USA)
The single piece, somewhat misleadingly entitled in the plural as Feuilles d’Album is really a charming salon waltz—a great favourite in its day, and the kind of ingenuous trifle which Liszt composed all too rarely, preferring to confine this spirit to the world of his transcriptions.

from notes by Leslie Howard © 1994

Ce morceau unique, portant un titre au pluriel qui pourrait prêter à confusion, Feuilles d’album, est en réalité une charmante valse de salon. Très en vogue de son temps, c’est cette sorte de bagatelle ingénieuse que Liszt ne composa que trop rarement, préferant confiner cette humeur au monde de ses transcriptions.

Français: Luisella Simpson

Das Einzelstück—irreführend im Plural als Feuilles d’Album aufgeführt—ist wirklich ein bezaubernder Salonwalzer—ein in seiner Zeit äußerst beliebtes Werk und eine dieser einfallsreichen Bagatellen, die Liszt, der seinen Geist lieber auf die Welt seiner Transkriptionen beschränkte, nur allzu selten komponierte.
