Asimismo, son muy recomendables las escenas de los ensayos previos al concierto. Solo tiene un detalle; una pequeña parte del primer movimiento parece no haberse grabado.
Para todos los seguidores de "Deep Purple", éste debe ser un DVD de colección.
The video was excellent as with most of the Sony productions, and the audio was stupendous. This was a live performance and it is about as Deutsche as it can get. Here we have a German conductor, a German violinist, conducting and playing with a German Orchestra for Germans.
The video is a perfect companion to their CDs with a concert filmed in a small club. Some backstage and outdoor video is added in to enhance the viewing. The sound is crystal clear and the editor thankfully refrained from using a bunch of computer effects to annoy and detract. It is like being their...only closer than the band would ever let you get. ;) A small photo gallery is also tacked on. The highlight for me is "I Should Have Known," which is also my favorite track from The Storm.
For those totally unfamiliar with Karnataka's music I can only say that it compares with Clannad with a slightly more rock feel. Rachel Jones, the vocalist, has a wonderful voice that conveys the emotion of the songs very well.
Since I have vitually no chance of ever seeing the band live this is the next best thing and well worth it. But whether or not you buy this DVD, take a look for their music...you will not be disappointed!
The concert also included Bach's famous Toccata and Fugue, several short choral pieces and a violin solo piece. All were performed well.
The recording of the concert was well-done. In particular, the sound was very clear. The ambiance of the Nikolai Church was also good.
The bonus 30-min documentary feature "Protest of Silence" contained footages of the events as well as post-interviews with various people. The programme used Beethoven's 5th Symphony and some other pieces as background music, rather appropriately. You may want to view this documentary first, before you start to view the concert performance. This will put you in a better mood to appreciate this concert which was held to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the political events that occurred around this church.
a tv studio.
The German tv show is called OHNE FILTER-MUSIK PUR,and has been brodcast continiously since 1983,and has artists than can
actually play real music,unlike the chart music for kids today.
Artists that play blues,jazz,soul,funk are to be found,and
over 300 bands have performed on this show.
Duke Robillard is a genuine guitar player,and can switch
from blues to jazz to rock in a second.
His version of T Bone Walker's "Glamour Girl" is awesome,even
plays his guitar amazingly behind his head.
Other tracks are LOVE SLIPPED IN, NEVER LET YOU GO, RULE THE
WORLD, GEE I WISH (my favourite), SHE'S SWEET, LIFE'S FUNNY,
WHAT'S WRONG, I THINK YOU KNOW, TOO TIRED.
The concert is one hour long,with an interview with the producer of the tv show,a list of every artist to have appeared,
which includes THE FABULOUS THUNDERBIRDS, JETHRO TULL, LOS LOBOS,
RORY GALLAGHER, EDGAR WINTER, SANTANA, to name but a few,and hope that all these artists are released on DVD soon.
If you love the R&B sound,without the frills of light shows,
and special effects,get this disc.
Sure hope someone can release a DVD concert of artists like
ANSON FUNDERBURGH, JIMMIE VAUGHAN, BOBBY RADCLIFF, real artists
who's sounds will live on forever.
The highlight of the disc, and the routine that most fans remember most fondly, is her discussion of the Ring cycle. She tells the convoluted story of Wagner's four-installment epic, with careful attention to its absurdities, and she sings all the roles in a voice ranging shakily but with determination through soprano, alto, tenor, and bass. She does the same in her parody of a Gilbert & Sullivan operetta, and the advantage of a video recording becomes obvious when she changes funny hats while singing to show whether she is acting the heroine, villain, or chorus. --Joe McLellan
