To mark the 70th birthday of Leslie Howard, Heritage presents a new CD of works by Beethoven, featuring the first complete recording of the composer’s own piano transcription of his ballet music The Creatures of Prometheus. Howard, known for his performances and recordings of transcriptions by Liszt, is the perfect artist to commit this repertoire to disc.

    ‘Howard’s attention to detail, excellent finger strength, beauty of tone and rhythmic authority make one long for much more Beethoven on disc from his hands… Strongly recommended with no reservations.’
