Description: The Czech-born Stradal gives us a second volume (see 04O041 from April 2013 for the first) of his striking Wagner transcriptions, some of them unusual (transcriptions of individual arias are less common) but all of it complex, ingenious and fascinating. These are not bits - the five pieces recorded here range from 12 to 21 minutes in length. Juan Guillermo Vizcarra (piano).
