Gramophone Magazine reviews Adrianne Pieczonka Sings Strauss • Wagner in the October 2015 Issue:
“It is difficult to believe that Adrianne Pieczonka has built up some years of experience of singing taxing Strauss and Wagner roles in the opera house. Heard under the close scrutiny of a Lieder recital, her soprano retains a bloom that is positively youthful. … Wagner’s Wesendonck-Lieder…is a performance of lambent beauty. ‘Im Treibhaus’ and ‘Träume’ especially, the two studies for Tristan und Isolde, radiate glowing soprano warmth, sympathetically seconded by Zeger. … it would be hard to do better than Pieczonka’s radiant performance. At just over 50 minutes the programme is not generous, but the expressive beauty of the singing certainly is.” —Richard Fairman, Gramophone
