From Russia to Love: The Life and Music of Viktoria Mullova
From Russia to Love: The Life and Music of Viktoria Mullova
Price: £10.79

4.0 out of 5 stars Brave violinist, 14 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Amazing view of Russia at its communist worst and the efforts of a dedicated musician to escape. She emerges stronger than I had previously thought.


Lully: Armide / Christie - Carsen - Les Arts Florissants (Théâtre des Champs-Elysées 2008) [Blu-ray]

Dvd ~ William Christie

5.0 out of 5 stars Great production of this little known Lully opera., 13 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An amazing recording from the Theatre des Champs-Elyses partly filmed at Versailles. Sumptuous singing from Stephanie d'Oustrac who looks amazingly sexy throughout. Brilliant playing and singing under William Christie. Superb!


Berlioz: Grande Messe des Morts

3.0 out of 5 stars Colin Davis' swan song, 13 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The cavernous accoustic of St Pauls Cathedral and Colin Davis tendency to slow down in his old age make this a seriously slow and disappointing recording of a great piece of music. Colin Davis has recorded it several times in the past, and I was hoping for magic but for that you need to listen to his dvd from 1989 recorded in Regensburg Cathedral.


Puccini: Tosca [Royal Opera House, 2011] - Gheorghiu, Kaufmann, Terfel [DVD] [2012]
Puccini: Tosca [Royal Opera House, 2011] - Gheorghiu, Kaufmann, Terfel [DVD] [2012]
Dvd ~ Angela Gheorghiu/Antonio Pappano
Price: £12.46

5.0 out of 5 stars The best version of Tosca ever!, 13 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a winner. Tosca is Puccini's best opera packed with violence, drama and fabulous music, sung here by the best international cast, superbly conducted by Papano and very well directed and filmed. Top quality dvd picture and surround sound.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very readable, I could not put it down, 13 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
slightly over the top and unlikely story of domestic life in the USA, starting with excessive violence. But a good read if slightly beyond my comfort zone

4.0 out of 5 stars very quick delivery, expert packing - attractive designs, 13 Jan 2014

Having smashed my bedside water carafe and glass I sought replacements in the shops in nearby city shopping centre. No luck anywhere! But a scan of the internet and a wide choice was available. Excellent designs delivered quickly and safely thanks to very good packaging.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great series, 13 Jan 2014

This review is from: Young Montalbano [DVD] (DVD)
Superb casting, directing and acting. Highly watchable and the subtitles are excellent, making sense of the slightly improbable scripts.. The scenery, old buildings, seaside of Sicily and the girls are stunningly pretty. A winner.


The Very Best Of Judy Collins

3.0 out of 5 stars nostalgic songs from the 60s, 13 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Beautifully sung folk songs from the 60s and 70s. Some like "both sides now" and "send in the clowns" sound very good, others are less exciting

5.0 out of 5 stars Magic city., 29 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very helpful. But don't take the train from the airport! A taxi is so much less hassle. But the Gaudi in the city is fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 29 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant but slightly fiercely played, I prefer Schubert to be lyrical and even dreamy. Better than the other recent releases, but not as lovely as the Hollywood Quartet or the Busch.
