5.0 out of 5 stars Classic young Mile Davis performance, 16 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Miles Ahead (Audio CD)
This recording, either in vinyl or on CD, should be part of every jazz lover's collection. The CD has the bonus of additional tracks not available on the original

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the great ragtime performances, 16 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In my view no-one has ever bettered Joshua Rifkin's superb performances of these classic ragtime compositions. It replaces my well worn vinyl discs by the same performer

5.0 out of 5 stars There are many available DVD versions of this opera, but everone should have this one, 16 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I regard this as one of the best performances on DVD. Some productions can make it seem like a very long four hours, but not this one

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth trying out, if only for its rarity value, 16 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although this work doesn't bear comparison with Die Zauberflote, it's an interesting oddity that probably will not receive many performances

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting opera from an 18th century composer who died at the age of 40, 16 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This DVD shows us an Italian composer whose early death may have deprived us of a talent that did not have the opportunity to reach its potential

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A strongly cast, well performed opera by a contemporary of Handel that will appeal to everybody who is interested in pre-Mozartian opera.

4.0 out of 5 stars Henry of Navarre, 16 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An interesting film, especially for those who know a little about French history & the conflict between the Huguenots & Catholics. Will definitely watch it again in future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alban Berg's 'Lulu', 16 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Berg: Lulu [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
This is probably the best DVD (DG 073 4637)available of the opera that is currently available. A strong cast & Patricia Petibon as Lulu makes the role her own.
