Reviews

'Leslie Howard is once again an ardent and reflective champion in both his playing and in his brilliantly informative essay; he also promises further discoveries. Hyperion's sound and presentation is immaculate as ever' (Gramophone)

'his stylistic understanding is always impeccable, and as recorded here his Steinway makes a warmly appealing sound' (BBC Music Magazine)

'So we learn more about this extraordinary composer, thanks to that rare combination of Howard's scholarly musicianship … and fearless keyboard technique, allied to the ongoing commitment of Hyperion Records—without which the entire musical world would be so much the poorer' (International Record Review)

'Howard's playing is so refined that even the almost impossible passages of the Concerto are made to seem easy and this is simply the best recorded piano sound I've heard in years' (The Times)

'no-one fascinated by Liszt, or by Romanticism at fever pitch, will tolerate being without this. Howard's Steinway sounds like it's in your living room—whispering, crooning, or thundering—up close and near. Liszt lives! Long live Liszt!' (Fanfare, USA)
The Album-Leaf: Magyar in B flat minor was composed for Ignaz Moscheles, and its musical material is almost identical to part of the eleventh of the Magyar Dalok (see volume 29).

La Feuille d’album: Magyar en si bémol mineur, composée pour Ignaz Moscheles, recèle presque le même matériau qu’une partie du onzième des Magyar Dalok (cf. vol.29). Bien qu’ayant pu être destinée à un événement particulier – elle possède l’atmosphère festive propre aux pièces de ce genre dans le canon lisztien.

Das Albumblatt: Magyar in b-Moll wurde für Ignaz Moscheles geschrieben, und das musikalische Material ist fast identisch mit einem Teil des elften Magyar Dalok (siehe Vol. 29).
