Alfred Brendel - In Portrait | DVD | (18/06/2001)
from £18.99 | Saving you £6.00 (24.00%) | RRP
Alfred Brendel in Portrait is a double-disc set that all admirers of this most intellectual of pianists will want to own. The first disc is a short but intense recital, consisting of Haydn's Sonata in E Flat Major, Mozart's Sonata in C minor and Schubert's G Flat Impromptu; these are thoughtful yet lyrical performances, filmed with a concentration that brings out Brendel's angst-driven magnetism. The second disc starts with a 70-minute documentary that details Brendel's upbringing and early encounters with music and his gradual metamorphosis from brilliant young virtuoso specialising in Liszt to serious-minded interpreter of the Viennese classics: it includes a lot of expressive footage of performances of everything from the Brahms First Piano Concerto to Schubert's Winterreise with Mathias Goerne and much discussion of Brendel's extra-musical interests in poetry and painting. The disc is filled out with the pianist and Sir Simon Rattle discussing how to perform Beethoven's Second and Third Piano Concertos, and Brendel reading his own poetry in German. The multi-regional DVDs are double-sided with PAL and NSTC formats. The 16:9 anamorphic viewing ratio provides us with a hypnotically clear picture to go with extraordinarily perfect Dolby surround sound. They come with subtitles in English, French and German. --Roz Kaveney

Macbeth | DVD | (15/09/2008)
from £10.59 | Saving you £3.40 (24.30%) | RRP
Andrea Gruber Roberto Aronica and Lado Ataneli star in Verdi's early operatic masterpiece Macbeth - filmed live at the Metropolitan Opera in High-definition. EMI Classics continues its collaboration with the Metropolitan Opera with a new production of Verdi's richly haunting opera Macbeth as part of this season's 'Metropolitan Opera : Live in High-Definition series'. For the first time in 20-years the Metropolitan Opera presents the first of Verdi's three operas based on Shakespeare in a stylistically eclectic grimly effective and at times intriguingly playful production (New York Times) by English director Adrian Noble making his Met debut. At the time of composition Macbeth was unique. Not only was it considered both musically and dramatically bold but it was the first opera that can truly be described as Shakespearean. It was the first that altered operatic conventions to serve the play rather than converting the play into traditional operatic formulas. After 35 highly successful years as Music director of the Metropolitan Opera a relationship unparalleled and unique in the musical world today James Levine conducts Verdi's haunting score with tension and a type of brutality that this chilling work commands.

Haydn - String Quartets - The Lindsays | DVD | (01/08/2005)
from £5.09 | Saving you £19.90 (79.60%) | RRP
The Lindsays' enviable reputation owes much to their authoritative recordings of the complete quartets of three composers: Haydn Beethoven and Bartok. Their recordings of the quartets of Haydn stand out in particular setting completely new standards. The wonderful instruments they play on - two Stradivari violins an Amati viola and a Ruggiero cello - make a significant contribution to the Quartet's unique and unmistakable sound. The Lindsays have made a decision which very few musicians dare to make: at the height of their international fame they have decided to disband the Quartet. This DVD set is a testimony to an extraordinary ensemble that has not only set standards for the future but has also done much to restore Joseph Haydn father of the string quartet to his rightful place in the repertoire.These seven quartets were recorded in High Definition and true Surround Sound during the acclaimed Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival in 2004.

It is an unparalleled archive of live Miles Davis performances and is now being released on a visual format for the first time ever. Although many tracks are repeated across the years the concerts are strikingly individual with extensive improvisation and frequent rearrangements. The final concert from 1991 sees Miles Davis paying tribute to his collaborator and close find Gil Evans who had died in 1988. With Miles’ philosophy of “never look back” it was extraordinary that he would agree to perform such a show and it was a truly unique occasion captured here for posterity. Miles Davis is undeniably one of the most important and successful jazz figures of the 20th century. This unrivalled DVD box set of his live performances at Montreux is a release to be truly cherished. Bonus Features On disc one there are full interviews with Claude Nobs, Carlos Santana and Herbie Hancock plus shorter interviews about Miles Davis with Monty Alexander, Helen Merrill, Betty Carter, Charlie Haden, Gil Goldstein, Stanley Clarke, Jean Luc Ponty and Al Di Meola and Michel Petrucciani.
