Notes & Reviews:

'Having visited in recent times many new countries, many diverse sites, many places hallowed by history and poetry, having felt that the various aspects of nature and of related scenes did not pass before my eyes as vain images, but that they aroused in my soul deep emotions; that there was established between them and me a vague but immediate relationship, and indefinite but real rapport, an inexplicable but definite communication, I have tried to express in music some of my strongest feelings, my most vivid perceptions.' -Franz Liszt

"Ashley Wass brings panache, power and poise to the first book of Album d'un voyageur.... The rarely done Apparitions of 1834 also receive a welcome airing, Wass contrasting the lyrical sensibility and passion of the first piece with the whimsy of the second" -The Telegraph ****

"Wass's command of the young Liszt's idiom engages both with its poetry and virtuosity: he underscores the contrasts of mood and tempo in 'Lyon', for instance, to articulate the broader design in a way that's highly effective." -BBC Music Magazine ****

"He relishes every opportunity for expressive nuance in "Le Lac de Wallenstadt"...and storms the final pages of "Vallee d'Obermann" as to the manner born...this is a distinguished offering, well recorded, of special interest and played with total musical commitment." -Gramophone Magazine
