'His idiomatic grasp and utter reliability remain as admirable as in earlier instalments. Excellent sonics and informative notes by the performer' (American Record Guide)

'These discs not only bear moving witness to Howard's devotion to Liszt, and Liszt's devotion to Schubert, but also offer a wealth of insight into both composers' (Classic CD)

'Other performers should be inspired to include this repertoire in their programs after hearing Howard's persuasive presentation' (Piano & Keyboard)
Die Forelle (‘The Trout’, D550d), is given in its later, somewhat simplified and totally recast second transcription, still with one extra variation of the melody before the denouement of the poem has the fish hooked.

Die Forelle, D550d («La truite»), dans sa seconde transcription plus tardive, quelque peu simplifiée et totalement restructurée, possède toujours une variation supplémentaire de la mélodie, avant que le dénouement du poème ne voie le poisson pris au hameçon.

Die Forelle (D550d) in ihrer späteren, ein wenig vereinfachten und ganz und gar neu gestalteten zweiten Transkription, die noch immer eine Variation aufweist, bevor der Fisch im Ausgang des Gedichts schließlich an der Angel hängt.
