'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)
Resignazione may be an organ work. It was written on a blank page after an organ piece and no instrument is specified, so pianists and organists both have shown interest in this tiny fragment which dies away without any hint of ‘resignation’ at all!

Resignazione est peut-être une œuvre pour orgue. Elle fut écrite sur une page blanche à la suite d’une pièce pour orgue et sans aucune spécification d’instrument, si bien que pianistes et organistes se sont intéressés à ce minuscule fragment qui s’éteint sans la moindre note de «résignation»!

Resignazione ist möglicherweise ein Orgelstück. Es wurde auf einer Leerseite im Anschluß an ein Orgelwerk niedergeschrieben, ohne Angabe eines Instruments. Darum haben sowohl Pianisten als auch Organisten Interesse für dieses winzige Fragment gezeigt, das ohne jede Spur von „Resignation“ ausklingt!
