Movie Reviews

Peter T. Sipos | Riyadh, Saudi Arabia | 10/26/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Highly recommended.

The playing is exciting and flawless. The sound (DTS and 2 channel) is perfect. The video is "high definition", though I'm not sure what is meant by that, since the disc isn't either HD-DVD or Blu-Ray. But whatever the technical meaning, the picture is crisp and full of color. The backdrop is a richly decorated victorian room, a feast for the eyes. The camera-work is varied but not too busy - just perfect. The introductory interviews are insightful and entertaining.

As far as Bartok's quartets (2, 3, and 6 on this recording), that's beyond the scope of this review. For anyone not familiar with them, a Google search is in order.

This is a VERY musically and visually satisfying disc. I hope they release the other three Bartok quartets soon."
Jacket misinformation
Richard W. Yiengst | Reading, Pa | 10/12/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Great quartet playing with perfect give and take among the players. How-
ever the jacket as shown on Amazon is incorrect. The disc does not contain
Quartet #4. Just 3,2, and 6. Be aware of this if you order. Bartok is not easy listening, but it is worth the effort to listen, or some moving
experience will be missed."
A Totally Biased Comment
C. Oran Ball | Massachusetts USA | 08/01/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The reviews by Mr. Sipos and Mr. Blackburn are underwritten here. But, further:
Anyone who knew the Bartok quartets only through LPs, tapes, and
CDs, such as, heretofore, I, has a wonderful revelation forthcoming!
I have been listening to these marvelous compositions for well over
half a century. Now, in one blown-away sitting, the sixth quartet
has been remade for me! (You can tell that my bias is entire.)
I do believe that any who try this DVD will never judge Bartok's music
in the same way again!! I will clap at every showing!

Buyer beware.

"These are not live performances. The Quartet is miming to recordings. A major disappointment! Stick to the Cd's."
