Notes & Reviews:

Lohengrin is the third volume of PentaTone's monumental undertaking of the recording of all 10 major Wagner Operas. The Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester und Chor, under the direction of Janowski, accompanies top Wagner soloists in each release. The cycle will be complete in the end of the Wagner year, 2013.

Gramphone Magazine
Janowski's Dutchman indicates that he is on course for a triumphant Wagner Cycle.

BBC Music Magazine
It is a phenomenal achievement of Marek Janowski to have welded his immense forces into a virtually flawless unity.

Classics Today
As early as the Prelude the quality of the audio shines: the separation of the strings is spotless and crystal-clear...the music, as it should, shimmers in mid air. And so it goes throughout the performance...[Vogt's] singing is outstandingly beautiful and sensitive, and you get used to the small-but-gleaming sound after a while...Lohengrin is supposed to be otherworldy, and Vogt's sound certainly is.

Sunday Times, July 2012
The shimmering "holy" textures of [the Act I prelude is] evidence of the sonorous string culture of this Berlin band, as remarkable as that of its Rattle- and Barenboim-led rivals. Janowski is a master Wagnerian, but his swift tempi and propulsive momentum are the antithesis of Barenboim's more spacious Wagner.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
The performance omits the Anhang to the Grail Narrative (it might have been added as an appendix, especially given the comprehensive nature of the whole project). Libretto and translation are included. As far as the recorded sound goes, I've never heard better in Lohengrin, and many collectors will find that important - but bigger, steadier, and more beautiful voices are easier to find, and you should look for them. I have a fondness for Leinsdorf's Boston recording on RCA, but Kempe on EMI is still the best, with Solti (Decca), Abbado (DG), and even the old Bayreuth Keilberth (Naxos) following fairly close behind.

BBC Music Magazine, October 2012
Janowski has matured into the most reliably impressive Wagner conductor of our time...[Vogt] has a lovely voice, though it occasionally sounds thin; but he is expressive, intelligent and convincing. So is his Elsa, soprano Annette Dasch. The villains match them, especially mezzo-soprano Susanne Resmark as Ortrud, who calls on the pagan gods with thrilling panache...I await the rest of the Pentatone series with impatience.

International Record Review, September 2012
This is a Lohengrin to be listened to in Bruckner mode: revel in the sound of chorus and orchestra and put up with the voices, though I am sure some will react differently to Vogt's Lohengrin.

Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2012
[Dasch] is the ne plus ultra in slim-sounding, girlish Elsas. But it sounds and works so beautifully...[Vogt's] understanding of the part triumphs, there is much lovely quieter singing and he is able to bring special atmosphere to the Grail narration...Resmark is pushed at times by the tessitura...but gives such a firecracker Ortrud that no one should care...There's a terrifyingly long list of worthwhile Lohengrin recordings, to which this newcomer is a serious competitor.
