Ken Meltzer
Fanfare, September 2015

It is clear throughout the recordings…that both conductor and orchestra fully embrace not only the drama, but the beauty and elegance inherent in Wagner’s orchestrations.

The remarkable orchestral execution and balances in these recordings certainly attest to the conductor’s experience in the concert hall. And the quality of this new Wagner release is of the absolute highest order. A marvelous achievement. © 2015 Fanfare Read complete review

Cinemusical, March 2015

…marvelous music making is on hand here.

The recording here recreates the orchestra fairly well. There are moments in this collection when you will likely get goosebumps at the dramatic and spot-on interpretations of this music and that is a very rare thing these days! Highly recommended… © 2015 Cinemusical Read complete review

WQXR (New York), March 2015

Luisi coaxes shapely playing from the Zurich strings in the Prelude to Tristan und Isolde and makes a compelling case for the obscure overtures to Die Liebesverbot and Die Feen. © 2015 WQXR (New York) Read complete review
