Movie Reviews

Splendor in Brussel's Guild Square
Judith A. Lincks | Dayton Ohio | 10/19/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I do not normally write reviews or hyperbolize about musical artists, but felt compelled to do so in Helmut Lotti's case. The polyglot Mr. Lotti's english is so perfect that his rendentions of "Crying" and "He Ain't Heavy He's My Brother" rank with the best. He really seems to be a good human being as evidenced by his interaction with his audience, fellow performers and Flemish children in "When You're Sailing." Furthermore, his involvement with UNICEF demonstrates his willingness to give of himself. The location was beautiful as were the orchestra and accompanying singers. The DVD performance was nearly as good as "being there." It's sad this kind of talent is more appreciated in Europe than in the US."

"This is my most treasured music DVD. His rendition of "Crying" would have made Roy Orbison sit up and take notice. With a world class symphony orchestra as backup, every song in this concert is a meticulous and inspired labour of love. I found the mix of onstage and video versions of song selections to be particularily masterful in heightening entertainment value. The shooting location in Brussels' city centre is absolutely superb. All these attributes and Helmut Lotti's personable connection with his audience and onstage performers, creates an overall atmosphere of warmth throught the concert. This is the first time that I have enjoyed the Special Feature "Making Of" as much as the concert itself. Additionally, I found the Special Feature studio recording of Danny Boy with Cliff Richards particularily breathtaking. I hope that someday he will add Vancouver, BC to his concert tour so I can witness a live performance."
Another Winner!

"When you think you've seen the best here comes another 'best'. This production is a winner as this classy performance of Helmut Lotti and all those involved make it near perfect, if not already perfect. The choice of music, location of his hometown of Brussels for the concert, guests of Cliff Richards, Helmut's lovely wife and the children used to accompany him on one number are all classy. Speaking of music choices 'Cry', 'Mandy', 'Danny Boy (with Cliff Richards), 'Bohemian Rhapsody', 'He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother', 'A Whiter Shade Of Pale' and "I'm Sailing' (with the children's group) were among the great numbers to enjoy. This young man is not only a great entertainer but could be a role model for many young people in performing grace and class."
Excellent song collection and a spectacular voice

"I have been Helmut Lotti's fan for years, ever since year 1998 I saw his classic concert on PBS. He has such great voice and he sings with passion. This CD contains many popular songs that we can sing along with. He is a very talented singer, not only sings but also writes his own music and lyrics. Once you hear him singing, you can't forget his voice. He hits those high notes with such ease that sometimes you forget that he is not a classical singer. I brought both DVD and CD on this title, and own almost every album that he ever made, at least ten CDs. Too bad we use to find his CDs in stores, now we can only order it on-line. I am eagerly anticipating his new work, because I know that I will not be disappointed."
