'As a guide to this cornucopia Leslie Howard could hardly be bettered' (BBC Music Magazine)

'All kinds of fascinating morsels … there is much here to interest any admirer of this remarkable and prolific composer' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'Fascinating trouvailles' (Classic CD)
The title of the early version of the Canzonetta del Salvator Rosa is extended to read 'per il clavicembalo da F. Liszt', but a performance of this piece on the harpsichord would be a travesty, so essentially pianistic is its conception, despite the Baroque origins of its model. This version is very straightforward, with the opening literally repeated after the interlude.

Le titre de la première version de la Canzonetta del Salvator Rosa est prolongé par la mention «per il clavicembalo da F. Liszt», mais interpréter cette pièce au clavecin serait la travestir, tant elle est de conception fondamentalement pianistique, nonobstant les origines baroques de son modèle. Cette version fort simple voit l’ouverture littéralement reprise après l’interlude (la seconde version figure dans le deuxième livre des Années).

Français: Hypérion

Der Titel der frühen Fassung der Canzonetta del Salvator Rosa ist erweitert worden: ‘per il clavicembalo da F. Liszt’, aber eine Aufführung des Stückes auf dem Cembalo wäre eine Lächerlichkeit, so klavieristisch ist seine Konzeption, unabhängig von der barocken Herkunft seines Vorbildes. Die vorliegende Fassung ist sehr unkompliziert; die Eröffnung wird nach dem Zwischenspiel notengetreu wiederholt (die spätere Fassung ist im zweiten Heft der Années enthalten).
