Notes & Reviews:

With this recording of a selection of Franz Liszt’s music for violin and piano, Ulf Wallin and Roland Pöntinen aim at expanding our understanding of the prolific composer whose style, especially later, evolved in a manner far ahead of its time. Liszt composed his first music for violin and piano as early as 1832, returning to this instrumental combination throughout his life. Some of the pieces are re-workings of earlier compositions. In the early Grand Duo concertant pure virtuosity and the joy of playing are to the fore, but in the late works Liszt takes us on a journey into his own innermost soul.

BBC Music Magazine, September 2015
Wallin offers a stream of full-throated, gloss-free tone, brilliant in the Grand Duo, and searchingly expressive elsewhere, with beautifully alert and supportive accompaniments from Pntinen.

Gramophone Magazine, August 2015
The Grand Duo... emerges even more clearly as a light-hearted, even frivolous set of virtuouso variations intended to entertain... [Wallin & Pntinen] revel in playfulness, helped not a little by Pntinen's wonderful leggiero touch and their response to the ping-pong tarantella finale.
