Franz Liszt's Piano Concerto No. 3 in E-flat major, Op. posth. 25a), was possibly composed in 1839. It is believed that this piece was composed before the first two concertos, but the dating is inconclusive as there are claims it was not finished until 1847. Like his second piano concerto, it is a one-movement piece. It was virtually unknown until 1989. It was identified and assembled from multiple sources by Jay Rosenblatt, a doctoral candidate at the University of Chicago.
His Chandos recording of this monumental work was named one of the ten best of 2012 by the New Yorker magazine. For the Canadian label ATMA Classique, he has recorded Mendelssohn concertos with the Orchestre symphonique de Quebec and, as conductor, Mendelssohn's "Reformation" Symphony.

Howard is, by general consensus, probably the finest living exponent of Liszt, and his traversals afford all-enveloping verve and charisma, tremendous daring (Howard’s risk-taking comes off; Lortie’s doesn’t) and a formidable intellectual grasp of the music.
