CD Works for Mandolin and Piano with Richard Walz, Mandolin, and Viviana Sofronitzki, Piano
I have just discovered the following videos with recordings by Richard Walz. These are recordings from a CD Works for Mandolin and Piano with Richard Walz, Mandolin, and Viviana Sofronitzki, Piano, recorded in 1998.
This CD is probably no more available, and I do also not know how long those videos will be available at youtube – so if you want to hear it, do it soon!

Richard Walz has a homepage about his biography and his instruments, and about bowlback mandolin in general.
Another interesting site is the site of luthier Daniel Larson who built a mandolin for Richard Walz. You can find several pieces played on this mandolin on the following homepage:
