Movie Reviews

FITTING MEMORIAL TO THE LATE GIUSEPPE SINOPOLI
Timothy C. Wingate | Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA | 10/25/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I disagree with the review from the person in Greensboro, NC. I find Sinopolis interpretations to be telling and intuitive.

It is nice to have the rarely performed Jubel Overture by von Weber and fitting that Vivaldis Concerto di Dresda was included - and very appropriately so - in this concert marking the 450th anniversary of the founding of the Saxon State Ensemble which called itself at that time the Dresden Court Ensemble.

The visuals are breathtaking and the concert hall is a gem of its type.

Please enjoy the concert as it also includes the Rienzi Overture by Wagner and the Alpine Symphony by Richard Strauss.

Very highly recommended and a fitting tribute to a great conductor who died much too early and much before his time.

Wonderful program, yet moderate perfromance....
Andy | Greensboro, NC | 03/10/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This performance of the Dresden Statskappelle from the Semper Opera, Dresden is surprisingly disappointing. Sinopoli seems to have difficulty communicating his vision to the orchestra, and as a result the orchestra sounds reserved and insecure. Of the Alpine Symphony performance, many of the great moments are troubled by insecure brass playing, a problem also evident in the Wagner. This frequent instability causes the brasses to sound individualistic rather than cohesive as a section, and cohesiveness is the key to this work. The strings are generally excellent throughout and the sound quality of the disc is ok, yet not up to par with other Arthaus DVD's."
