3.0 out of 5 stars Three Stars, 14 Sept. 2014
This review is from: Great Expectations [DVD] (DVD)
While this well done, why was it necessary to re-write Dickens' book. In that regard it's a travesty!

This review is from: Abbado - Mozart (Audio CD)
I really am sorry to agree that is emasculated Mozert and a huge disappointment to me - an admirer of Abbado since I first heard him at the Salzburg Festival in 1965. So what do I do with these discs? I don't want to pass them on to my kids so it will have to be a charity shop! Oh dear.

1.0 out of 5 stars A REAL STINKER!, 30 May 2014
This review is from: Fading Gigolo [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
This is supposed to be a "movie", well it ain't - it's a "crawlie", and struggles towards it's inglourious end through utter tedium. The story has more holes than a lump of Emmental cheese. I have given one star only because of Vanessa Paradis. As for Woody Allen, he should be ashamed of himself for his part in this worthless.drivel. Have you ever sat through an Allen film without a single titter from the audience? Bah!

5.0 out of 5 stars Something of solace and joy, 5 Nov. 2013
This is simply some of the loveliest playing I have ever heard. The other reviews bring all the other wonderful gifts of this pianist forward but just listen to the sound - it is so lovely, with the emphasis on love!

5.0 out of 5 stars An incredible bargain!, 3 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is no reason to mince matters here - this is a wonderful box of discs with singing of a beauty and power that one cannot even imagine hearing today. Those who listened to the recent Ring at the Proms will be astonished by these singers. And the sound is quite acceptable but the price is a joke - 25 discs for just over £25! Grab it while you can.

3.0 out of 5 stars What a shame!, 20 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was privileged to have seen this production at the Chichester Theatre. I bought the VHS version when it appeared but gave it away because of the dreadful visual quality. Now I have the DVD and expected the picture to be a great improvement. Sadly this is not so. Surely the picture can be digitally improved. It certainly deserves it for it's a masterpiece of British theatre.

5.0 out of 5 stars TOSCANINI IN BRITAIN, 7 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Toscanini in Britain (Hardcover)
It may not be generally known that Toscanini was a frequent visitor to London in the 1930s. He had a great admiration for the newly-formed BBC Symphony Orchestra and his concerts with them drew high praise from professional musicians and music lovers, including the young Benjamin Britten. Some of Toscanini's finest recordings were also made in London with the BBC orchestra. This is a fine and scholarly achievement and a thoroughly good
