How on earth do you categorise a disc like this? Wagner himself used to moan about walking into St. Mark's Square in Venice and having to acknowledge execrable performances, usually of his Rienzi Overture, played by the local bands outside the cafes.
The performances on this disc are anything but execrable. But otherwise the situation is much the same. This is a band, playing outside a cafe in St. Mark's Square in Venice, with all the ambient sounds going on around.
That said, I have to admit to a huge affection for this recording - and that from a devoted and purist devotee of the Meister's works for many years. Uri Caine is a phenomenon. His recordings of Mahler, of Bach's Goldbergs and Beethoven's Diabellis are ear-opening, shifting and changing the original material to cast new light on the composers' works. I believe they are always respectful, despite including outrageously bluesy versions of some of the Goldbergs, for example, or sharp, acrid Klezmer views of Mahler.
These Wagner arrangements, however, are relatively straight, given the accordion-led cafe band instruments available. And the music is played without send-ups or irony - judicious tempos are chosen throughout and the instrumentations always enhances the music played.
And then city adds moving touches of its own - cafe society hums along with the Pilgrims' Chorus from Tannhauser, the Venetian church bells add their clamour to the climax of the Meistersinger Overture. Caine and his group are afraid of nothing. Forget 'Apocalypse Now': you simply haven't experienced the Ride of the Valkyries till you've heard it played by a small cafe band in the open air in St. Mark's Square.
I would urge you to listen to this disc with an open mind. Chances are you will either love it or hate it.

There is little to add to Klingsor Tristan's review, except that I wholeheartedly concur - this is wonderful, sensitive playing of fine arrangements. The recording is good, the atmosphere invigorating, and my feeling as I listen through this disc is a growing sense of joy, culminating with a deeply moving Lohengrin overture. Wonderful.

There is something exceptionally life-affirming about this CD. It truly sparkles with skill and intent, and stripped of a full orchestra Wagner's music shows off a muscular strength and melodic sweetness that is a real surprise. Add to that the ambience and you have music that could soothe the most savage of souls, played without irony.

I heard the Tannhauser Overture from this album played on Radio 3 the other day and it stopped me in my tracks.In an instant I was whisked away as a rapt member of the audience in St Mark's Square Venice listening to the interweaving mastery of this ensemble. A real treasure.
