Leslie Howard has performed throughout the world. He is perhaps best known for his recording of the complete piano music of Liszt. It's the largest recording project ever undertaken by a solo musician. Joining Doug in the studio (complete with piano), Howard talks about his career and his passion for music. (Rebroadcast)

On Wednesday, November 14 at 7:30 p.m., Leslie Howard will be in concert at the Cathedral Church of St. Mark in Salt Lake City. He'll perform Beethoven's "Eroica" Variations, Rachmaninov's Piano Sonata No.1 and four of Liszt's operatic fantasies. For more details, click here or call 801-328-9508
