Movie Reviews

No Singing Here
Jay | 12/26/1999
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Beware ... there is no singing on this disk. It consists of three musicians -- Hakan Hardenberger, who modestly describes himself as the world's greatest trumpeter, and two young friends, a trombonist and a pianist, who play a number of transcribed opera and ballet tunes. Nice playing, but perhaps not what one would expect."
No singing, but top brass performers!

"This is a must have for any brass enthusiasts, Hardenberger and Lindberg are among the world's finest trumpet and trombone players! The performance is absolutely first rate, nice tone and wonderful showcase of technique! The transcriptions of opera arias are quite successful too. Perhaps the title is a bit misleading so I think amazon should clearly label this DVD as a brass, not vocal, performance."
Don't shoot the messenger!

"Read the program description BEFORE you purchase this product to avoid being disappointed with the content. OK, there is no singing on this program. But what you do have here are the best trumpet and trombone players before the public today. The performances are exceptional, and the program works well - it's enjoyable and tastefully done. It definitely deserves high marks. If you think you would be interested in a program of operatic transcriptions for brass, then this program is a joy."
Solo brass playing at its finest.

"This DVD is a real gem. Hardenberger and Lindberg give an excellent performance which showcases their fine technique and ability to control their instruments. Perhaps most importantly, they are able to convey their fine musicianship without the aid of the human voice. This is not an easy task when one considers that they are borrowing literature from the world of opera. Also, the setting of the art gallery in which the performance takes place is quite stunning. Bravo!"
