New Year's Day Concert 2008

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Surprise, 4 Jan. 2009
The choice of the elderly Pretre to conduct this concert was a bit of a surprise, especially as the concert is performed three times-quite a test of stamina for the old boy. He sails through it with flying colours and yields little if anything to his perhaps more illustrious forbears. Sound is absolutely cracking and, as an aside, I wish that the BBC had not made such a disgraceful mess of televising this years concert. They seem terrified of classical music in any shape, form or guise. But this 2008 concert is terrific.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Haunting Disc, 5 Aug. 2008
All the music here was written in Nazi concentration camps and only one composer survived to tell the tale. A sobering disc but astonishingly much of the music is really cheerful, tuneful and beautifully performed as a tribute to artists who rose above their terrible surroundings to leave something memorable and lasting to future generations. Full marks too to DG for recording it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Performances, 5 Aug. 2008
Filmed in Tokyo these really are splendid performances by the London Phil on top form, inspired by their favourite conductor. The audience respond enthusiastically to what was obviously a great occasion. Disc is short on details concerning the recording but who cares with performances like these?
No vocal pieces, but just bleeding chunks of your favourite Wagner . A definite 'must buy', especially at bargain prices.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Disturbing but Flawed book., 20 July 2008
A disturbing but flawed book on one of the darkest chapters in world history. The court transcripts are disjointed and whole pages spread out a few lines onto the whole page. Depth and analysis is not what this book is about and I found the whole thing disjointed and in the end not very satisfying.

5.0 out of 5 stars SUPERB, 1 July 2008
EXCELLENT COMMITTED PERFORMANCE FROM NAGANO AND HIS BERLIN ORCHESTRA WHO YIELD NOTHING TO THE BERLIN PHILHARMONIC IN THEIR PERFORMANCE OF THIS TERRIFIC WORK. ORCHESTRA ON TOP FORM FOR THE BEST DVD OF THIS WORK.
