Leslie Howard is an Australian pianist, musicologist and composer. He is best known for being the only pianist to have recorded the complete solo piano works of Liszt, a project which included more than 300 premiere recordings. He has been described by The Guardian as “a master of a tradition of pianism in serious danger of dying out”. His recital brings together some of the finest of Liszt’s music.
