Notes & Reviews:

My Liszt Wolfgang Manz comments on his Liszt Recital=2011 has been a special year, above all for pianists across the world. It marks the bicentennial of the birth of one of the most enigmatic musical personalities of the nineteenth century, a piano virtuoso who explored and developed piano technique in an unprecedented manner, a composer who pointed the way ahead, the creator of the symphonic poem, the forerunner of twentieth-century musical developments, a conductor, a teacher and progenitor of pianistic traditions, but also a mystic, a Gypsy and a ladies' man: Franz Liszt.

Fanfare Magazine, September/October 2012
There is no straining for subtle inferences here, no fetishized dynamics or contours. This is bold, vital, robust music-making with great arches of phrase, soaring singing lines, and scant ambiguity of meaning, all of it redolent of the grand style. Among the many mixed piano recitals to emerge from 2011, surely Wolfgang Manz's is among the half dozen finest. I keep returning to it, always with pleasure, and suspect you may too.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
Full praise to the sound engineer for the excellence and depth of the recording. The pianist has contributed towards the notes, and the whole enterprise deserves the highest praise.
