Two of opera's brightest stars, Cecilia Bartoli and Bryn Terfel and conductor, Maestro Myung-Whun Chung, will thrill you with their very special brand of magic for a recital of arias and duets recorded at the beautifully refurbished Glyndebourne Opera House. The programme features favourite pieces from, amongst others, Mozart, Rossini and Donizetti. Filmed in High Definition.
Works: Donizetti: L'elisir d'amore - Quanto amore; Handel: Judas Maccabaeus - Arm, arm ye brave; Haydn: L'anima del filosofo - Al tuo seno fortunato; Mozart: La clemenza da Tito - Parto, parto, ma tu ben mio; Don Giovanni - La ci darem la mano; Madamina, il catalogo è questo; Le nozze di Figaro - Overture; Se vuol ballare; Si a caso madama; Die Zauberflöte - Pa-pa-pa-pa-Pagagena; Rossini: Il barbiere di Siviglia - Dunque io son?; Semiramide - Bel raggio lusinghier
"...pinpoint vocal interplay and assured comic acting...a formidable display of coloratura technique and laser-sharp intonation." (The Guardian)
"...the two well-matched singers get exactly right the tricky question of just how much ‘acting’ to do in concert performance...unflawed and un-ostentatious professionalism [from the orchestra]." (Gramophone)
"...it's an emotional edginess that makes Bartoli's performance of the cantata Arianna a Naxos so remarkable, an artist running to embrace danger you might say...The concert begins with Harnoncourt leading his own Vienna Concentus Music through a compelling... performance of Haydn's Oxford Symphony. As ever, it's orchestral balance and the carefully judged dynamics that make a Harnoncourt performance so gripping. The hushed introduction to the opening movement is as tightly coiled as a spring, before it's ambushed by the whole orchestra. It's a delight to watch Harnoncourt working with his own players..."

Gesungen wird superb und jeder für sich ist dabei in Höchstform.
Dies ist sicher die DVD für seelische Tiefpunkte die bei dem ersten Takten sofort verschwinden. Sollte eigentlich von jeder Krankenkasse annerkannt werden...
Spass bei seite - diese Zusammenstellung wurde auch als Audio CD herrausgegeben die allein schon damals aufhöhren lies. Zu unserer Freude nun die Video DVD Ausgabe mit superbem Ton.
Orchester und Dirigent geben dem Duo die dezente Beste Unterstützung.
Zum Öfteren Ansehen in jedes Sammleregal Bitte!

So, a fine disc to watch and hear...but unless you are of the Old Breed, you will have to accept that all that you will know of what they are saying, in most cases, is, you are a smart dame, I sure am.
This is a fabulous concert, with Bartoli and Terfel exhibiting mountains of style, personality, and virtuosity as they have a great time with the material. The concert was first released on DVD just before their 1998 appearance in the roles of Figaro and Susanna at the Met, and this concert's version of Le Nozze's opening duets through "Se vuol ballare" is IMHO much better than the staged version I saw on PBS (it was strangely dull, like Terfel's Don Giovanni there). But on the concert stage at Glyndebourne the interplay between Figaro and Susanna is a joy to behold; likewise the pair's charming "La ci darem." I personally love DaPonte's recitative text, and it was great to hear just as it should be dramatically stated. Terfel's Catalog Aria shows that he may be more suited to the cynical role of Leporello than that of the suave Don, though the Handel aria is more bluster.
Bartoli is an acknowledged mistress of Rossini roles, and even though I'm not a big fan of the composer, watching and hearing her could easily win me over.
This is a great disc to have in your collection, to see the young Terfel and the mature Bartoli give a masterful lesson on how Baroque and Classical music should be performed and enjoyed, by singer and audience alike.
On this DVD one gets to see and hear not only two great virtuosos in what must be their absolute singing prime, but also two incredible actors who obvious absolutely love what they are doing: And if that wasn't enough you get to listen to a magnificent orchestra who has a conductor with impeccable timing. Also the photography is wonderfully done: just the right facial expression, just the right cut to the next camera for the most appropriate view: just the right angle to see the cello player come in on a certain note to accompanying the vocalist. Magic, just magic! Too bad there wasn't more.
Since my original review of this DVD in Jan 2002 I would like to add that this has, without a doubt, become my favorite opera DVD: and Donizetti's "Quanto amore" from the Elixer of Love is my favorite piece. Although there are several others that are truly wonderful ("madamina", "La ci darem la mano" and "Pa-pa-pa" just to mention a few)
It is the definitive perfect mix of Singer-Conductor-Orchestra acting as a living breathing entity.
What a thrill it must have been to have witnessed this performance live.
