Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
This concert, recorded in 2010, marked Lionel Bringuier's début appearance at the Proms. This was not his first performance with either the BBC SO or with Nelson Freire however and it is immediately clear that there is already close understanding between all of these musicians.

The concert starts off with a sizzling performance of the Corsaire Overture by Berlioz. The slow introduction is certainly given full rein for expression and this leads to an exhilaration second part which is exciting enough to raise smiles of enjoyment among the ranks of the orchestra.

Nelson Freire then performs Chopin's second piano concerto. Curiously the Chopin concertos are becoming quite a feature of Blu-ray concerts and this is now the third in my collection. As such it clearly stands apart from both Kissin, who is on top form in this concerto, and Ohlsson, who also provides a fine performance. Both of those pianists are accompanied by the Warsaw PO conducted by Antoni Wit and it is immediately apparent on this BBC SO disc how much superior the orchestral response is. There is considerably greater definition of the lines within the orchestral writing and far more interaction between the players and the pianist. This superiority would also apply when compared to several CDs that I have had and some I still own. This extra dimension is largely to do with more attentive and aware conducting, strange though it may seem in one so relatively inexperienced (on paper at least).

Nelson Freire delivers quite a different performance than usual and I was constantly reminded of his strong and purposeful performance of the Brahms concertos.

This MUST be one of 2013's outstanding Blu-ray Classical music releases!
Especially as it is (a)from a live 2010 BBC Prom (b) with BBC's very own wonderful Symphony Orchestra with the brilliantly gifted young French conductor Lionel Bringuier at the helm.
Now the BBC S.O's response to this Frenchman's direction is absolutely first class in all departments!
However, for myself, the highlights are Nelson FREIRE's highly sensitive performance of the Chopin Piano Concerto No. 2 and the incredible closing work of Maurice Ravel's Daphnis et Chloe Suite No. 2. This latter work is given a really sizzling performance from the whole orchestra with special mention of woodwind, brass & percussion in offering us, through Maestro Bringuier's
dynamic conducting, one of the best performances I have heard/seen in the last few years!
The Blu-ray DVD technical quality of this BelAir classics release is easily the best Blu-ray DVD I have purchased to date! Video picture is absolutely superb and the audio of dynamic surround sound quality, especially in 5.1 DTS HD MASTER AUDIO format , of course if you have the multichannel Blu-Ray player/audio gear to reproduce it!
On this particular, but rare occasion, I did not purchase my copy through AMAZON! However they currently show stock of this release, so I seriously urge you to acquire same if you love French Music of this calibre performed so magnificently.
