Product Description

Product Description

Pierre Boulez conducts the Berliner Philharmoniker and pianist Maria Joâo Pires in this concert featuring selections by Bartok, Mozart, Ravel and Debussy recorded live at the 'Mosteiro dos Jerónimos', Lisbon in 2003.

Review

Maria Joao Pires was spellbinding. In Mozart's anguished Andantino, the tension was almost unbearable. Since Clara Haskil, I cannot remember playing of such intimacy, tenderness, and simplicity. --The Independent

What a superb pianist Maria Joao Pires is .She performs, supremely, what any composer wishes to be produced from what is written.
Being a great admirer of Arrau and Argerich, I put Pires in the same bracket, and currently am collecting her recordings.

HASH(0x936557b0) out of 5 stars a superb aural and visual experience 12 Nov. 2014
By John E. Drury - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Two features of artistry are showcased in this satisfying DVD of the annual Europa Konzert at the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos in Lisbon in May 2003; first and foremost is the Berlin Philharmonic's superb performances of Mozart's "Piano D Minor Concerto #21", Ravel's "Le Tombeau de Couperin" and Bartok "Concerto for Orchestra," conducted by French conductor/composer, Pierre Boulez, and the popular Mozart piece exquisitely performed by Portuguese pianist, Maria João Pires. Add the golden radiance of the monastery to the beauty of the music and one feels an aural and visual calmness and solemnity to the two hour concert. Boulez mixes in a little spice for the encore - but not too much - with Debussy's melodic "Fetes."

Other Amazon reviewers have commendably reviewed the concert, so there is not need for repetition. A few observations though: Boulez, a master of passionless excellence, surely designed this concert lineup giving it a twentieth century modern French feel. Ms. Pires is the centerpiece of the concert and a deserved hit with the Portuguese audience. Albrecht Mayer, principal oboist for the orchestra, competes with Ms. Pires as this is the night of the woodwinds for sure.

Lastly, the film director must be commended as the canny mix of the music with the lens makes this performance an exquisitely beautiful concert experience. The camera angles, the beauty of the lighted pillars, the timing of the long distance of shots keyed to the score, underscore a cinematic artistry expected in these EuroArts DVDs.
