Charles H Parsons
American Record Guide, September 2013

Albrecht plays the Kleuker-und Cavaillé-Coll-Mutin organ in the St Nikolai Church in Kiel. The organ registrations are more mellow, well-integrated, yet with clarity of line, the performances very exciting with lots of movement and propulsion. It’s an aural treat. © 2013 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Five popular Wagner operatic preambles in organ transcriptions make a terrific noise. Albrecht’s playing, vibrant and nuanced, captures the music’s epic grandeur. © BBC Music Magazine

Jeremy Nicholas
Gramophone, June 2013

The five transcriptions are cleverly ordered as a symphonic suite: introduction (Tannhäuser), adagio (Parsifal), scherzo (The Flying Dutchman), intermezzo (Tristan), finale (Die Meistersinger). The recording is sonically awesome…one has to admire Albrecht’s formidable technique and piquant registrations and, in the end, simply surrender to the sheer aural magnificence of the music. © 2013 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone
