4.0 out of 5 stars A lovely surprise, 14 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
New to me, and bought on speculation, as I love to try new things, this music has given me great pleasure. It rewards the listener with a wide compass of emotional, vibrant and melodic moods, and I am only surprised that this composer's music is not more widely featured in concerts or broadcasts.

Needed a simple means of shampooing, due to ill health, but these caps left my hair feeling greasy. I would not recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Olympic fun, 13 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite the Team at the Top, the 2012 Olympics were a big success! Hugh Bonneville and a first rate team of actors give delightful performances as everything that might go wrong DOES go wrong at the planning stages. A laugh out loud mood enhancing comedy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing, 13 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hunted [DVD] (DVD)
This was a nasty film, with scenes of sexual violence that went way beyond requirement to make the point. Why two major stars such as Gere and Danes consented to appear in it is a mystery, as the script was well below the standards one would expect such actors to be attracted to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing production, but musically superb, 26 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although I thought the production had a number of annoyingly silly factors, the quality of singing and the orchestral accompaniment were both superb. And then, to top it all, there was the wonderful radiance of Waltraud Meier's acting. Overall, I'm glad I bought it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of 'the best', 2 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There have been several fairly recent DVDs of Tosca which have been acclaimed as 'the best'. I admit to subscribing to this opinion on first one, then another. But this latest production from Royal Opera House is, to my mind, the best of the best. Gheorghiu as Tosca is unsurpassed, Kaufmann brings a new, sensitive dimension to the role of Cavaradossi, with what must be the finest tenor voice currently onstage. As Scarpia, only Bryn Terfel could convey the evil, lustful character so magnificently. In short, this is one to watch....and watch, again and again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delius remembered, 29 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fine collection of Delius's work, along with interesting comment by Fenby and Beecham which add some personality detail of this gentle genius to the broader picture of his unique music. A must for all lovers of Delius's extensive output, as well as a fitting introduction for all who want to experience its beauty for the first time.
