Movie Reviews

"brilliant performances ~ Red Army Choir & Orchestra"
J. Lovins | Missouri-USA | 02/10/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Koch Entertainment presents on DVD "Live in Paris", featuring The Red Army Choir, Orchestra and Dance Ensemble with some of the most impressive musicians and singers numbering over 400 members...when you view and listen to this DVD, voices ring true and clear with the gusto of "RUSSIAN NATIONAL ANTHEM" and "KALINKA" seem to jump out at you...watching history in the making after decades of performing...this video is priceless and has brought the years to the forefront, when this male choir took first place at the Paris Universal Exhibition in 1937.

Red Army Choir & Orchestra has taken the reins to bring the "ultimate" of full choral sounds, including classical suites and traditional songs...if you love superb vocals with rich and vibrant styles...25 selections plus two bonus tracks guaranteed to take your breath away...rich harmonies and the amalgamation of voices makes the music eternal...among the best choirs in the world...this DVD has it all.

My highlight picks are the "CHORUS OF THE HEBREW SLAVES" (from "Nabucco"), "BANDIT'S CHORUS" (from "Ernant"), "SPANISH MEDLEY:AMAPOLA I VALENCIA I GRANADA", Excerpt from "BORIS GODUNOV", "MARCH OF THE TOREADORS" (from "Carmen")", "NESSUN DORMA" (from "Turandot"), "DE QUELLA PIRA" (from "Il Travatore"), choral, orchestra and dancers are brilliant with outstanding arrangements and excellent performances within each members sections, a must have for your music collection...every performance is remarkable, completely above all expectations...if you love the classics, this will satisfy your cravings.

The closing "MOSCOW NIGHTS" (Midnight In Moscow), always a favorite of mine and the Red Army performance has that special touch...then an added bonus feature if you click onto "Season's Greetings", featuring "SILENT NIGHT" and "JINGLE BELLS", each holiday selection performed in English and what else but Russian...very festive sending a warm greeting to one and all on this small planet we live on.

Total Time: 122 mins on 27 Tracks ~ Koch Entertainment 7004 ~ (2/08/2005)"

"A good DVD with great music and dancing. However it would have been better to concentrate on all russian music. Camera work was not the highest & sharpest quality rather more an amateurish effort. Sound recording quality also not absolutely stellar. Nonetheless a nice DVD to have."
