In 1986 - the centenary of Liszt's death - Leslie Howard gave a series of ten Liszt recitals in London. By carefully selecting only Liszt own compsitions, Howard was able to represent Liszt's entire solo piano work.
Consequently Howard made the largest recording project ever - the complete music for solo piano of Liszt (1985-1989).
All Liszt's versions of his piano music were included, including more than 300 premiere performances and recordings, and pieces unheard since Liszt's lifetime, and also all arrangements of other composers' work. Four discs were given to Liszt's seventeen works for piano and orchestra, about half of which were premiere recordings made from unpublished manuscripts.
The series ran at first to 94 full-length CDs, and earned Howard a place in the Guinness Book Of Records. One bonus disc and two later Cds - New Liszt Discoveries raised the number to 97. Two new discs were recently recorded and will appear in 2010.

A critic in the BBC Music Magazine declared: "Howard is, by general consensus, the finest living exponent of Liszt. (He has) a formidable intellectual grasp of the music, (and) his vastly superior performances continue to carry the day."
Leslie Howard’s recording of Liszt’s complete piano music, on 95 CDs, is one of the monumental achievements in the history of recorded music. Remarkable as much for its musicological research and scholarly rigour as for Howard’s Herculean piano playing, this survey has been invaluable to serious lovers of Liszt. The range of Leslie Howard’s sympathies is evident here, from the flamboyant showpieces of Liszt’s youth to the challenging and prophetic works of his old age. This is the perfect introduction to Liszt, one that goes well beyond simply presenting his most popular works. ~ Hyperion

Thank you for your comments.

It is a real effort indeed.
I know that some people do not appreciate this kind of work.

As for me, I found here many works of art and consequently aesthetic pleasure, so I feel that it is very important to restitute the lost music to the other people who deserve to found and listen it.

If my feelings and judgment are wrong, at least some people will be happy and that's all about here... :)

Does anyone happen to have the scans for Vol. 3? (There's no pdf link on the Hyperion website)
In the comments to Soloweb's upload, there was a link, but it's gone offline, regrettably...

Thanks in advance!

Same problem for Vol. 7, 8 & 10 (and probably other volumes as well...)

Hyperion has published notes/artwork for each volume of Howard's Liszt-edition and for the three New Discovery CD´s. Most of these pdf files have have been directly created from the source files and are perfectly searchable. However, some of the files are scanned booklets. These files have been ocr´ed (optical character recognition), but contain quite a lot recognition errors. And they are very large. For example: the original (scanned) booklet of volume 46 (Meditations) is 7.68 MB.

I've bundled the 61 booklets into a single pdf file, which begins with volume 1, volume 2 etc, and ends with the 3 New Discovery CD´s. Bookmarks (F4 in Adobe Acrobat) are added for each volume, so you can jump directly to a particular booklet. The pdf file of the bundled original booklets has been optimized, reducing the original size of the 61 booklets from 42.4 MB to 20.6 MB, without decreasing the qualilty.

Hyperion has recently issued (or will soon issue) a boxed set of 99 CDs of all the recordings (see http://www.hyperion-records.co.uk/al.asp?al=CDS44501/98) at the special price of £187.5 (= £250.00 minus a 25% discount). In this edition (and the accompanying booklet) the CDs are arranged differently. This booklet can be downloaded from http://www.hyperion-records.co.uk/notes/24f33cb4692a4da9/44501-B.pdf. I've optimized this booklet too (same quality), reducing the size from 53,1 MB to 17,7 MB.

Original booklets in a single pdf file (1124 pages):

What a monumental, and gratifying undertaking! This upload will be much appreciated.

I own about 1/2 of these CD's having purchased them from an estate sale. Almost all of them had never been listened to! That I don't have to rip them all myself is a tremendous relief.

Many thanks.
