'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 manuscript of the Valse surfaced at a sale of autographs in Paris in early 1995 where the present writer made its acquaintance. It has since been published in America in an excellent edition by Rena Charnin Mueller. (Curiously the handwriting of the title in the manuscript shows 'Walse' – a spelling which Liszt did not otherwise employ.)

Le manuscrit de la Valse fit surface lors d’une vente d’autographes, à Paris, au début de l’année 1995 – où le présent auteur en eut connaissance. Elle a, depuis, été publiée en Amérique, dans une excellente édition de Rena Charnin Mueller. (Curieusement, l’écriture manuscrite du titre est «Walse», une orthographe que Liszt n’utilisa jamais ailleurs.)

Das Manuskript des Valse tauchte Anfang 1995 bei einer Versteigerung von Autographen in Paris auf, wo sie der Autor zu Gesicht bekam. Seitdem ist es in den USA in einer hervorragenden Ausgabe von Rena Charnin Mueller veröffentlicht worden. (Merkwürdigerweise erscheint im handschriftlichen Titel des Manuskriptes die Schreibweise ‘Walse’, die Liszt sonst nie verwendete).
