Notes and Editorial Reviews

'This early Beethoven collection finds Howard on top form. The notes which [he] writes to accompany each issue are erudite, witty, totally enthralling for Lisztians and pianophiles alike' (BBC Record Review) 'One can only marvel at Leslie Howard's tireless advocacy of Liszt, and the way he constantly overcomes the multitude of technical obstacles in his path' (Gramophone) 'Titanic performances. I recommend this presentation to you simply as something which is sine qua non for any connoisseur of outstanding pianism. It has seldom been off my CD player since I received it' (Soundscapes, Australia) 'This early Beethoven collection finds Howard on top form.
