(1 out of 5 stars)
"This is the worst vocal DVD released so far. The Das Lied von der Erde is risibly dramatised, with performers who can neither sing nor act very well, and a reduced orchestration which hurts more than it helps. The Kindertotenlieder is a straight concert performance with somewhat better singing, but again the orchestra is reduced, sounding more threadbare than focused.Buying this awful DVD is a priority only for those who can stand unintentional humor for more than a full hour at a time. If you think the joke will wear thin for you before the hour is up, stay away. This DVD has no business in international distribution - it will be taken seriously only by family and friends of the performers."
