Anton Liste (1772-1832) has languished in obscurity since his death. And on the evidence here you can understand why, with his amiably unmemorable sonatas aping the manner of early Beethoven but lacking the dynamism, passion or intellectual rigour. Sympathetic, committed performances. Richard Wigmore
