5.0 out of 5 stars Could Classical Destinations Get Any Better? 11 April 2010
The first Classical Destinations was a delight, both in presentation, and musically. The second series is even better. The ACO play beautifully and the geographic locations together with Simon Callow's polished enthusiasm make this a treat to enjoy. A dvd to possess - not to borrow!

2.0 out of 5 stars Dont like it! 18 Mar 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
More a documentary than a musical CD. There is too much talk insufficient music. The music segments are too brief.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finest documentary available 1 Mar 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This second series of "Classical Destinations" is even better than the first. Historically accurate, exquisite scenery, great music played to perfection. The the fact that this is now available in Blue Ray is an added plus. Highly recommended for anyone who loves Classical music, European history and travel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classical Destinations 2 11 Jan 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is a most welcome documentary, especially on Blu-ray disc. I enjoyed the first instalment in this series but the sound quality in
this later recording, together with the visual component, is excellent.
