John Terauds
Musical Toronto, March 2013

What we get is a colourful collection of Overtures and miscellaneous other largely operatic material from Wagner’s greatest hits.

Particularly fine is a transcription of “Träume” from the Wesendonck-Lieder and a jaunty Homage March for King Ludwig II of Bavaria on disc 1 and the Death March from Götterdämmerung and the Overture to Rienzi on disc 2.

The Götterdämmerung excerpt, with its bells, chimes and heavy tremolo (vibrato) is cheesy yet utterly engrossing. © 2013 Musical Toronto Read complete review
