5.0 out of 5 stars Subtle sounds, 13 Oct. 2011
Catrin Finch undoubtedly is among the foremost hapinists of our time. Her realisation of Bach's Goldberg Variations is an invaluable addition to the 180 or so different interpreations of this unique piece of music available on CD. When listening to her playing, you tend to think that this piece has been written for the harp in the first place, although you certainly know that this is a "Clavieruebung" (piano exercise). Her playing is clear and subtle, with just the right balance between rationality and emotion. For us who are happy to own this recording, it is a listening exercise and a delight for mind and soil.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Bergman Monograph, 25 Jan. 2010
There can be little doubt that Ingmar Bergman was the most eminent film director of all times. The time-span, during which his films were made, covers almost the entire second half of the 20th century. His films reflect important elements of the human psyche and the human mind, some of them moreover cover religious and philosophical subjects. These films do not intend to be "evening entertainment", nor are they "pleasant". In fact, in some cases the viewer is haunted by horrific images during sleepless nights.

Anyone who is genuinely interested in this film director, definitely should be in possession of the INGMAR BERGMAN ARCHIVES. It consits of an extensive biography which comes in pieces, which shows how much of Bergman's personal life has gone into his films. It also makes us aware how much Bergman was a "man of the theatre". Each of his films is documented by mostly excellent still images and shots on the set. The latter are particularly revealing in that they show the way Bergman has interacted with his actors. The text consists of parts of interviews with Berman himself, as well as statements by film critics, actors and other people who worked with him during his life.

This is a luxurious large tome which is not exactly inexpensive. However, it is much more than "just one book". It is the ultimate Bergman monograph which anyone should have in his or her possession who is genuinely interested in Ingmar Bergman's work and in the history of the cinema as a whole.
