'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 Operatic aria – and sketched variation consists of a transcribed melody full of elaborate musical curlicues, and dislocated bits of an incomplete variation. It appears to date from Liszt's youth.

from notes by Leslie Howard © 1999

L’Aria d’opéra – et variation esquissée consiste en une mélodie transcrite, toute en complexes enjolivures musicales, et en morceaux disloqués d’une variation incomplète. Elle semble dater de la jeunesse de Liszt.

extrait des notes rédigées par Leslie Howard © 1999
Français: Hypérion

Die Opernarie und skizzierte variation besteht aus einer transkribierten Melodie voll ausgefeilter musikalischer Schnörkel und aus dem Zusammenhang gerissener Teilchen einer unvollendeten Variation. Sie scheint aus Liszts Jugendzeit zu stammen.
