5.0 out of 5 stars such mellow sound, 29 July 2012
This performance of these much loved works under the direction of Christopher Hogwood is so mellow when played on authentic instruments.Light and shade are superbly played out and the technical quality is bang up to date.Listen on top quality head phones to truly appreciate the detail.

5.0 out of 5 stars World class in Paris, 9 Nov 2009
This for me is the ultimate live concert album.Stunning quality audio combined with Diana's seductive tone, brilliant piano playing and world class backing and a feel as if your there make for a listening experience to die for.
A special mention should be made of Anthony Wilson,Guitar and drummer Jeff Hamilton.Anthony's "super soft" sound perfectly complements Diana and Jeffs restrained rhythm with the occasional spot on timed break is just perfection.
The add on track "Just the way you are" is beautifully done but the studio sound after the live concert performance is somewhat muted at first but then the ear becomes accustomed and the rest is pure magic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Magic, 28 Oct 2009
I have played this over and over.Fantastic quality audio and feeling of that magical experience you get from this wonderful masterpiece. Dame Judi is quite superb,and combined with the Boston Symphony really engages the listener.
Just sit back, shut your eyes and enjoy the magic.
