'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)
The other untitled piece in F sharp was found amongst Liszt’s manuscripts after his death and we know absolutely nothing about its provenance. It certainly contains much more of Liszt’s earlier style, with its fulsome melodic arch and parallel thirds, but yet with many a hint of music like the later Impromptu or the Valses oubliées.

L’autre pièce en fa dièse sans titre fut découverte parmi les manuscrits de Liszt après sa mort, et on ignore tout de son origine. On y trouve certainement beaucoup plus du premier style de Liszt, avec son arc mélodique excessif et ses tierces parallèles, mais aussi de nombreuses allusions à une musique comme le dernier Impromptu ou les Valses oubliées.

Das andere Stück in Fis-Dur ist unbetitelt. Es wurde nach seinem Tod in Liszts Papieren aufgefunden, und wir wissen nichts über seine Entstehung. Sicher ist nur, daß es mit seinem ausgeprägten melodischen Bogen und seinen parallelen Terzen wesentlich stärker Liszts früherem Stil verhaftet ist, jedoch gar manchen Verweis auf die Musik des späteren Impromptu oder der Valses oubliées enthält.
