5.0 out of 5 stars SUPERB, 4 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just as enjoyable as when I first watched it. Wonderful acting. The DVD set is enhanced by some of the cast and director interviews. They will never make another series like this. After watching the first 3 discs from a video libbrary, I purchased the boxed set and will watch it again many times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavenly!!, 19 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Heavenly (Audio CD)
I have had this collection on cassette for many years also having had the vinyl original Ride On A Rainbow. The opportunity to upgrade to CD was welcomed.
This is Johnny Mathis at his very best. Amongst the material which masquerades as 'music' nowadays, this is a very welcome breath of fresh air. I would recommend it to anyone.

This review is from: Liszt - My Piano Hero (Audio CD)
The bonus DVD is fascinating. Lang Lang is such a great pianist and to see these glimpses of him in lighter mode is so enjoyable. The actual CD of Liszt is of superb quality. The clarity of his playing never fails to move me and to my mind he must be one of the great pianists or recent times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Showman, 7 Oct 2011

This review is from: Liszt (Audio CD)
OK so Lang Lang is a showman but what a pianist. The clarity of his playing and the emotion that he puts into each piece is clearly evident. He has done so much to bring the piano to a wider audience and has succeeded. An excellent CD and thoroughly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classical Sondheim, 23 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Oh what a pleasure to relive this superb recording. David Kernan, Julia McKenzie and Millicent Martin in excellent voice on this reissued, remastered, CD. The quality of the material shines through and is matched by perfect performances by the stars of the original production. Sondheim is a genius and this CD is an excellent example of his true talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feinstein on top form, 23 May 2011

This review is from: Forever (Audio CD)
Whilst being biased as a true Feinstein Fan, I first heard this cd several years ago and finally purchased it shortly before seeing Michael perform live at the Leicester Square Theatre in April. A true artiste.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful playing, 23 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Leif Ove Andsnes is in great form on this double Concerto CD. Having seen a documentary in which he played the Grieg Concerto on Edvard Griegs original piano, I felt sure this cd would be good. Indeed it is with the performance of both the Grieg and the Schumann of the highest standard. Thoroughly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful quality, 1 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Passion (Audio CD)
Unfortunately I had to return 2 copies of this CD as the playback quality was awful. Disc kept sticking or slipping. Think there must have been a manufacturers fault. Great pity because the bits that did play sounded excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great new Sondheim disc, 29 Dec 2010

This review is from: Sondheim on Sondheim (Audio CD)
Always good to hear new Sondheim recordings and this show is no exception. Good to have Stephen Sondheim contributing and to hear Barbara Cook again. I gather that this show is to open in London in 2011 with Dame Judi Dench. Shall look forward to this. Recommended. Ian

I was very impressed with this purchase. Lang Lang is a supreme artiste and his enthusiasm for the music is a joy. It is a priviledge to be able to share his performance.
