Editorial Reviews

The genius of 9-year-old musical prodigy Ethan Bortnick comes to life in his first full-length concert DVD/CD package - Ethan Bortnick and His Musical Time Machine. This special release produced by PBS was recorded at the historic EL Rey Theatre in Los Angeles and showcases Ethan performing classics from three generations of pop standards, with side trips into jazz, classical and even disco. Ethan began playing a keyboard at the age of three and was composing music by the age of five. He is able to play any song by ear. His TV exposure has exploded since first appearing on Jay Leno s Tonight Show at age 7, where he has since become a regular guest. He has appeared on every major network, wowing audiences on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Good Morning America, The Martha Stewart Show and Yo Gabba Gabba. Fans of Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion, Kanye West and Miley Cyrus will recognize Ethan from his collaboration with the superstars on the We Are The
World 25 For Haiti track that made its debut during the opening ceremony of the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics.

The fun-filled DVD also features an interview with the legendary producer Quincy Jones. Watch as Ethan asks Quincy about Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson, and music. Other extras include an exclusive behind the scenes look at how this show was put together, with inspirational stories and interviews with some of the people involved in this historic production. Special guest include the Canadian Tenors, Arturo Sandoval and Gloria Gaynor.

I was so pleased with the DVD and the shipping and packaging. I could not believe the quality of the DVD. My students keep asking to watch the dvd again and again.

My 2 year old son watches zero TV, but watches this over and over. For the longest he could only see it at the baby-sitters house as they had it on their DVR. I tracked down the DVD for Christmas so now when we need the electronic baby-sitter we can thank Ethan Bortnick.

even though it's not my thing, if this inspires my son to enjoy music, I am happy with that.

Ethan is an extremely talented young boy. He had stage presence even at a young age knowing how to introduce and react with guest performers. He can write music as well as perform the music on the piano. He can also sing which has improved when he did his second special. We really enjoy his performances and highly recommend them. In his second concert he even had control of the orchestra and he was beginning that in this program. We are amazed at what he is capable of doing on the piano with this child's hands. He is able to reach difficult chords. He is really amazing.

I purchased this DVD for my grandaughter due to the one and only review available, and he was right, it held her interest (15 mo.) for some time. I enjoyed the DVD, the kid is easy to watch and it was worth EVERY PENNY to hear Gloria Gaynor sing "I Will Survive" (yeah, g-ma is that old). My problem was I never really got the time machine thing- "from Beethoven to the Beatles" neither of which is on the DVD. Nevertheless, I like the "real" feeling the boy puts into his playing- he has great intonation and interpretation. It is very well done. What is a positive and polite word for mishmash?
