Editorial Reviews

Andre Previn is on of the leading musicians of our day. The eighty-one year old cosmopolitan pianist, conductor and classical composer has not only received not fewer than four Academy awards for this film adaptations but was also one of the most influential jazz musicians of the fifties and sixties. A Bridge Between Two Worlds is a portrait of Previn's fascinating musicianship and also looks candidly at his private life, including his relations with his two ex-wives, Mia Farrow and Anne-Sophie Mutter. As a bonus this release features Mozart's Piano Quartets K. 478 and K 493 with Andre Previn at the keyboard.

By Steve Ramm TOP 100 REVIEWER on July 25, 2012
Format: DVD
Andre Previn is a true renaissance man. He is a composer (of jazz pieces, classical symphonies and has composed 2 contemporary operas). He has been married four times (including two to "celebrities" - songwriter Dory Previn and actress Mia Farrow) and has multiple children from the multiple marriages.

The 58-minute portrait of Previn that forms the core of this DVD was filmed in 2009by two German directors. It presents a very balanced portrait of the artist by having his "celebrity friends" interview him. We have opera singer Renee Fleming (whi starred in Previn's first opera "A Streetcar Named Desire" and violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter (for who he composed another piece). Playwright Tom Stoppard (a Previn friend, who secured Previn to compose the music for his play "Every Good Boy Deserves Favour") does his interview in a car (a taxi?) while riding around London. And of course there is Farrow (his current wife) and two of his children - one a musician whose arms are covered with tattoos.

The Directors use subtitles when the conversations are not in English, as in the case of Mutter, but it is strange to see (and hear) Previn's own narration in German (he was born in Berlin but lives in both London and New York). It takes a few minutes to realize that you have selected the correct "language option" on the DVD menu.

The bonuses are nwearly as long as the film. These include two Mozart Piano Quartets (with Previn on the piano) recorded in 2000. I, was surprised that the producers did not exchange one of these 28 minute pieces for footage of Previn in his jazz element. THAT would have better revealed the "bridge" between his two musical worlds.

I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.
