‘This album is one of the supreme rewards of Howard's Liszt traversal. Sound is transparently immediate, and the artist's annotations guide one surely and elegantly through these amazing riches—which you must hear’ (Fanfare, USA)

‘Marvellous stuff and quite impeccably recorded’ (CDReview)
Faribolo pastour (‘Pastoral Whimsy’) is the title of a song by Jacques Jasmin (1798–1864) who wrote the dialect poem Françouneto in 1840 and may have invented the melody himself or else adapted it from a folk song. Liszt met Jasmin whilst touring at Agen in September 1844 and improvised upon Jasmin’s romance. Jasmin returned the compliment with an improvised poem which was later published with a dedication to Liszt.

Faribolo pastour (caprice pastoral) est le titre d’une chanson de Jacques Jasmin (1798–1864) qui avait écrit en dialecte le poème Françouneto en 1840, et peut-être inventé lui-même la mélodie ou sinon l’avait adaptée d’une chanson folklorique. Liszt avait rencontré Jasmin à l’occasion d’une tournée à Agen en septembre 1844, et improvisé à partir de la romance de Jasmin. Jasmin lui rendit la pareille en improvisant un poème qui fut publié plus tard, dédié à Liszt.

Faribolo pastour („Pastorale Launen“) ist der Titel eines Liedes von Jacques Jasmin (1798–1864), der 1840 das Dialektgedicht Françouneto schrieb und die Melodie entweder selbst erfunden oder von einem Volkslied abgewandelt hatte. Liszt lernte Jasmin im September 1844 bei einer Reise durch Agen kennen und extemporierte über Jasmins Romanze. Jasmin erwiderte das Kompliment mit einem improvisierten Gedicht, das später mit einer Widmung an Liszt veröffentlicht wurde.
