Leslie Howard, piano legend, to play in Sofia
7 October, 2017World-renowned virtuoso pianist and composer Leslie Howard is expected to give a magnificent concert in Sofia on 30 October. Born in Australia in 1948, he was a child prodigy who first gained popularity with his incredible ability to perform music pieces just by listening to them, a talent he demonstrated before an audience at the tender age of five. Only 13, he made his debut as a professional musician with a repertoire of Rachmaninoff works. But it was his passion for the music of the brilliant Hungarian composer Franz Liszt that has left an indelible mark on his professional and personal life. Howard is the only musician in the world who has recorded all of Liszt’s solo pieces. This kind of effort and dedication have earned him a spot in the Guinness Book of Records for the World’s Largest Recording Series by a Solo Artist, with a total number of 99 CDs.
