Albert Mamriev ist aufgrund seines opulenten Klangempfindens, dem eine  
blendende Technik zur Seite steht, der ideale Interpret für die  
auslandenden Wagner Transkriptionen eines Franz Liszt.


Robert Nemecek - „Piano News“


Erstaunlich aber ist es, dass Mamriev nicht allein hochvirtuos spielt,  
sondern auch interpretiert. Hatte Liszt die Wagner’schen Sätze  
verändert, erweitert, paraphrasiert und über sie fantasiert, so führt  
uns Mamriev mit Hilfe Bearbeiters ins Herz der Musik, in der sie erst  
zu tönen beginnt.

Frank Piontek - „Nordbayrischer Kurier“, Bayreuth


Mamriev: technica infallibile… Sono state evocate ampiezze sonore,  
luminosita lacustri, accenni di danza, forti accenti, il tutto frutto  
di una scrittura efficace che e servita ad esaltare il pianismo  
qualificator di Albert Mamriev. Effetti accompagnati da una musicalita  
che ha Saputo sfruttare alternanze drammatiche, imperative, delicate,  
serene e talvolta spiritode.


Mario Petrucco – „Il Monferrato
