Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
Wolfram delivers a thoughtful and nuanced reading of Liszt's transcriptions of Wagner opera pieces. 'Liebestod' and 'Elsa's Bridal Procession' balance extremes, summoning both great intimacy and great sound. The delicate opening of 'Elsa's Bridal Procession' sounds wondrously clear. Wolfram's impressive approach, wide-ranging and clear without overusing the pedal, captures the sweep of Wagner's vision. Only sometimes does it seem overwhelming, as in the Pilgrim's Chorus. I encourage listeners to seek out his other Liszt recordings, also on Naxos.
