'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)
Recueillement (‘Recollection’)—a gift to the Italian composer Lauro Rossi—weaves arpeggios around a rising scale before settling into very simple, chordal writing, with frequent reminders of the keynote C sharp.

Recueillement—offert au compositeur italien Lauro Rossi—tisse des arpèges autour d’une gamme ascendante avant de s’installer dans une écriture d’accords très simples, avec de fréquents rappels de la tonique ut dièse.

Recueillement („Andacht“)—ein Geschenk an den italienischen Komponisten Lauro Rossi—webt Arpeggien um eine ansteigende Tonleiter, ehe es sich auf eine sehr einfache Akkordstruktur einläßt, mit häufigen Verweisen auf die Grundtonart Cis-Dur.
