Notes & Reviews:

Juan Gillermo Vizcarra is one of the leading Peruvian pianists of his generation, whose performances have been heard far beyond his native land. He has received numerous honors in international competitions. On this recording Vizcarra performs the works of Wagner transcribed for solo piano by Stradal, works which are phenomenally challenging to play.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
These transcriptions are by August Stradal, a Liszt disciple who had also studied with Bruckner. He was a prolific transcriber: lots of Bach, Bruckner symphonies, Liszt orchestral works. And it's all very virtuosic, in the style of Liszt. The playing is amazing. The Walkure excerpts are 26 minutes, 17 of them from the end of the opera (Magic Fire Music and such). They are my favorite thing here. Siegmund's 'Wintersturme' song is also pretty good on the piano.
