This is Wagner's most wonderful music, paraphrased in arrangements by Tausig, played by Denning. And what a treat it is. Denning is a virtuoso. The first of the "Tristan" paraphrases is beautifully played. Inner voices are caught to perfection. The tempi are just right. Get this album. It's a definite grower.

3.0 out of 5 stars Put me to sleep 30 Mar. 2011
By M. Becker - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have the highest regard for Carl Tausig and I have all the recordings he has done that are available. This CD was the most recent one I acquired and quite honestly, it was boring music. It just didn't have the "flair" that his other transcribed compositions had. He did a wonderful job on transcribing Liszt's Symphonic Poems.
5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Performances of Extremely Difficult Piano Transcriptions - 3 April 2017
By Dennis E. Ferrara - Published on
Format: Audio CD
It is interesting to note that Carl Tausig - (1841-1871) famed piano virtuoso and student of Franz Liszt lived with the Wagner family abet his terrible table manners and his smoking nasty cigars ar an extremely early age; nevertheless, Wagner was amazed at Tausig's technique in transcribing several of his operatic vocal and symphonic music for the virtuoso piano. Australian concert piano virtuoso has captured the essence of the dramatic qualities of these extremely fiendish piano transcriptions in this 1989 Et Cetra recording. It is sad to note that Mr. Hennig passed away in 1994 and these recordings are the only examples of his brilliant art.
The Program - Carl Tausig - (1841-1871) - Wagner Transcriptions and Paraphrases - Dennis Hennig - Et Cetera - TT: 55:31 - Three Paraphrases on Wagner's Tristan und Isolde - no. I - i. Liebesscene - Verklarung; ii. BBranganens - Gesang - Matrosenlied; iii. Melodie des Hirten; Two Transcriptions of Wagner's Die Walkure - (1863) - i.Siegmunde Liebesgesang -; ii. Der Ritt der Walkuren; Transcription of Wagner's Kaisermarsch - (1871).
The piano here is given a full symphonic treatment to some of Wagner's best known operatic material. The transcriptions are extremely fiendish and here under the brilliant technique and imagination of Mr. Hennig, the music is indeed exciting and full of dramatic color and variety. His expression, nuance, and his ability to make the art of the musical phrase come alive is here as a total musical feat for any listener who loves the art of the piano transcription and especially the excerpts from Die Walkure and its thrilling Ride of the Walkures. His performances are full of bravura, panache and a true sense of a 'tour de force' in performance here.
Excellent program notes by the pianist in English/French/German add much to the overall enjoyment of this recital.
