Howard’s world premiere

By Tins Magaba

BULAWAYO - Acclaimed pianist Leslie Howard was in Zimbabwe for the Bulawayo Music Festival.
A man of high distinction, he has accomplished a feat unequalled by any solo artist in recording industry – his 97 CD survey of the complete piano music of Franz Listz. That

alone speaks volumes for the man’s passion for the piano and the music it produces. With numerous awards to his credit, Howard is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records, especially for the Listz project.

A widely travelled man, he has toured different parts of the world giving recitals and master classes. Last year he received rave reviews from the New York Times for his performances at the International Keyboard Institute & Festival in Manhattan.

He made Bulawayo the scene of the world premiere of his recent work, Intermezzo, part of a larger work, Quintet for piano and strings, Opus 42, which is still in progress.
