'Yet another instalment in what is looming as the most ambitious and splendidly realized recording project of the century which cannot fail to delight and move. Enthusiastically recommended' (Fanfare, USA)

'An entertaining programme … providing the perfect vehicle for Leslie Howard's enthusiastic, colourful playing. His scholarship, as revealed in the liner notes, is remarkable, the recording first class' (CDReview)
This very simple setting of a French folksong just 29 bars long seems more redolent of the later Liszt world than it does of his early years in Weimar.

from notes by Leslie Howard © 1994

Cette mise en musique très simple d’un chant folklorique français de seulement 29 barres évoque davantage l’univers d’un Liszt plus âgé que celui de ses premières années à Weimar.

extrait des notes rédigées par Leslie Howard © 1994
Français: Jean-Luc Herin

Diese einfache Vertonung eines französischen Volksliedes ist nur 29 Takte lang und scheint eher dem späteren Liszt anzugehören als den frühen Jahren in Weimar.
