'Howard is obviously the right man for tackling a complete edition of Liszt's piano music (CDReview)
The Adagio, in C major, is an example of a musical autograph, signed and dated by Liszt, in the album of an unknown lady, preserved in an archive in Prague, and now published in the 1988 Liszt Society Journal in London—and based on a theme which all Lisztians will recognize as the second subject of the Dante Sonata.
