'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)
Nothing is known of the origin of the Andante sensibilissimo, which must have been some kind of private musical joke since it is marked 'avec miaulement' ('with miaowing'); the manuscript is in the Library of Congress (scribbled at the foot of a page of sketches).

Nous ignorons les origines de l’Andante sensibilissimo, qui a dû être une sorte de blague musicale privée, comme le suggère la mention «avec miaulement»; le manuscrit est à la Library of Congress (griffonné au bas d’une page d’esquisses).

Von der Entstehung des Andante sensibilissimo ist nichts bekannt – es muß eine Art privater musikalischer Scherz gewesen sein, denn es trägt die Bezeichnung ‘avec miaulement’ (mit Miauen); das Manuskript liegt in der Library of Congress vor (am Ende einer Skizzenseite hingekritzelt).
