Editorial Reviews

Queen legend Brian May and first lady of the West End Kerry Ellis come together for The Candlelight Concerts. This great performance is captured on cd and blu-ray. Filmed at the renowned Stravinski Auditorium during the Montreux Jazz Festival in July 2013, this wonderfully intimate show blends Kerry Ellis' beautiful voice with the sympathetic guitar playing of Brian May for a largely acoustic performance of standards, ballads, Queensongs and cover versions. Also included in the set is the CD of 'Acoustic By Candlelight' recorded live on the UK leg of their tour in autumn 2012.

5.0 out of 5 stars May and Ellis Are Fantastic! June 24, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
As a teen growing up in Phoenix, Arizona, Queen was one of the phenomenal bands who dominated the airwaves and stereos across the Valley of the Sun. Their amazing creativity and blend of classical influences with solid rock and roll (with just a tad of flamboyance thrown in just to make it interesting), made Queen the stand out band of the seventies.

While we have lost Freddie Mercury, the remaining members of the band are still alive, still creating, still innovating. This is especially true for the band’s iconic guitarist, Brian May, who, along with the lovely and talented, Kerry Ellis, have teamed together to release The Candlelight Concerts – Live At Montreux 2013 as a DVD + CD set and Blu-ray + CD.

This package offers up a treasure trove of covers classic songs that include, We Will Rock You, Born Free, The Way We Were, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Tie Your Mother Down, and I Who Have Nothing

The DVD was filmed at the Stravinski Auditorium during the 2013 Montreux Jazz Festival. The Candlelight Concerts – Live At Montreux 2013 masterfully melds Ellis’ beautiful voice with the amazing guitar playing of May. The film is of primarily acoustic performance sof standards, ballads, Queen songs and cover songs. Brian’s guitar style flawlessly compliments Kerry’ vocals, giving a different life and interpretation to these timeless songs.

The Acoustic By Candlelight CD, recorded live during the UK portion of their tour in Autumn 2012. The songs benefit from introductions by both Ellis and May that share background and influences of certain songs before they perform them. While some may not like the banter, I believe that it adds to the intimacy of the performances and give insight into the music that influenced these gifted artists.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great acoustic and electric concert!!! May 7, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I do not particulary like music played by one instrument only, i rather like multi instruments music, be it rock, jazz, new age or whatever. So I order this BD with some aprehension, I actually erased it from my cart more than six times!! But after listening to this concert all I can say is Waoooo! Great music, great voices, great performance captured in very nice audio and video.
A concert to sit down with a cup of good wine and enjoy with your lights out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular 90-Minute Show By May & Ellis March 31, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
I love acoustic-style performances. I always have. I think there’s honestly nothing as magnificently sublime as pairing the human voice with either a single instrument (or very few) because the arrangement – when done right – tends to showcase the best talent available from both worlds. Specifically, I think the human voice sounds incredible when backed simply by guitar or piano, and that’s largely what’s on display in this tremendous performance from musical legend / rock guitarist Brian May and singer Kerry Ellis.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and/or characters. If you’re the type of person who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I’d encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you’re accepting of a few modest hints at ‘things to come,’ then read on …)

Brian May is one of those talents who – quite frankly – changed the face of music. His work on guitar for Queen helped define a generation, and – alongside the late Freddie Mercury – the band put its stamp on a certain time and a certain place. Mercury’s passing didn’t slow May down for long, and he’s continued to lend his talents to others who’ve come under his wing. By contrast, Kerry Ellis is relatively new to music (especially when she compare their respective resumes), and her particular area of specialty (from what modest research I’ve done) is in belting out either pop standards or musical ballads. Like most small ladies of the stage and screen, she has a huge voice, and while I didn’t think her particular flourishes worked all that well with a few of the songs performed here it certainly wasn’t a distraction.
