Leslie Howard's work as a composer encompasses opera, orchestral music, chamber music, sacred music and songs, and his facility in completing unfinished works has resulted in commissions as diverse as a new realisation of Bach's Musical Offering and completions of works by composers such as Mozart, Liszt and Tchaikovsky.
