Rarely recorded and seldom performed in the concert hall, Philip Langridge unearths a forgotten corner of Liszt’s oeuvre: the songs which he wrote throughout his life and which range from austere miniatures to grandiose affairs conceived on a large scale. He is sensitively accompanied by John Constable.

"Liszt’s songs, a much underrated part of his output, find a most sympathetic interpreter in Philip Langridge. He has the intelligence and poetic sensibility to appreciate their very varied nature, and indeed without such qualities no singer is likely to make very much of them…Theirs is a sensitive partnership, and Constable is scrupulous in judging when the piano is supportive, when almost contradictory, when independent, when the soloist." - Gramophone
