Notes & Reviews:

This year marks the 200th anniversary of Richard Wagner's birth. This CD clearly shows Wagner's ambition to vie with Beethoven, manifesting the inclination towards big and boundless writing. Tobias Koch, one of the most versatile keyboard instrumentalists of his generation, reproduces Wagner's original sound in brilliant fashion.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
Koch's performance of Wagner's sonatas and lieder makes for a refreshing program, played well on an 1852 pianoforte. The sonatas, recalling Wagner's supreme self-confidence, retain great energy and drama. They are charming.
