Stemme sounds magnificent as ever in this composer's music, with gloriously rich, dark chest register and arresting dramatic projection reminiscent of the great Kirsten Flagstad. --International Record Review, June 2014

Format: Blu-ray
This concert from the 2012 Salzburg Festival received rapturous applause from the packed audience as well as enthusiastic press coverage. The style of the performances has much in common with another recent issue by Jansons with the Bavarian orchestra by emphasising the warm and tonally rich characteristics of the music and by having orchestras with the tonal and technical resources capable of portraying such views to advantage.

The concert opens with that very well known tone poem by Richard Strauss, his Don Juan. This piece opens with a striding horn motif which we can take to be a portrayal of Don Juan in up-beat hunting mode. There is a very egotistical element about this theme that vividly portrays that side of Don Juan and it has lead to many memorable displays of horn playing. Performances led by Reiner, Szell and Solti for example, have been etched into the memory of record collectors through this figure which finally occurs in full glory towards the end. In between there is an extensive quieter section which suggests more of the seducer rather than the predator. This central part can often be overshadowed by the more exuberant outer sections. This does not happen here as Jansons places considerable emphasis upon the central episode that is played with almost loving care and with every opportunity to luxuriate in the orchestral textures found there. This emphasis changes the overall effect of the piece and the apparent nature of Don Juan who is more amenable perhaps and less openly predatory.

The Wagner Wesendonck-lieder is a set of love texts and, bearing in mind the change of emphasis of the Don Juan, may thus acquire unintentional meaning not anticipated by Wagner.

Format: DVD
This is a performance that's almost too luxurious. From the sensual glories of Strauss's Don Juan and Wagner's Wesendonck Lieder, to Mariss Janson's lavishly upholstered rendition of Brahms's First Symphony, the listener is treated to the Vienna Philharmonic in all its velvety glory. Sometimes, however, not least in the Brahms, you hanker for a more urgent interpretation.

Still, there's no lack of attack at the beginning of the Strauss, as Jansons brilliantly contrasts Don Juan's bravura and his famous seductive skills. Liquid woodwind solos (not least from the oboist), a superb rallying horn section and the sumptuous Viennese strings brilliantly colour Strauss's tone poem. It's here that Jansons is at his most theatrical.

Nina Stemme's voice is becoming much more buttery as time goes on and her rendition of the Wesendonck Lieder is particularly full-flavoured. Jansons responds with a chilling 'Im Treibhaus', brilliantly setting up the richer glories of 'Schmerzen'. The throbbing viola and cello accompaniment in 'Träume' is particularly magnificent, closing the strong first half of this concert from the 2012 Salzburg Festival.

I'm less convinced by what happens after the interval. Jansons is a great symphonic interpreter, as revealed by his performances of Shostakovich, Tchaikovsky and Mahler at this year's Festival, but there's something oddly self-regarding about his Brahms. It's as if the whole interpretation is weighed down with the importance of the work, rather than its sense of urgency and achievement. Tenacious though the first movement may be, with superb work from the VPO timpanist, the central movements are beautiful but oddly disengaging.

Marris Jansons has long been a favorite of mine, some years my wife and I met him after sneaking up the back stairs at Leicester's De-Montfort Hall, as a plus for me he signed all my Chandos Tchaikovsky CD's. This Blu-ray deserves top marks for performance and quality of video and sound.

This concert is just fantastic both artistically and technically. A joy from start to finish and technically flawless (at least to my ears) Another great release from EuroArts. Thank you
