Format: DVD
Each member of the trio led by Jacques Loussier is so talented and did a great concert with such famous Bach's works as Fugue No. 5, Gavotte, Pastoral, Air on a G string, Brandenburg Concerto No. 5, and Harpsichord Concerto. They also played Debussy's Arabesque and L'lsle joyeuse, Satie's Gymnopedie No. 1, and Ravel's Bolero. With piano, bass, and drums, they play the classical works in their own jazz style in such a unique and creative way. Their Bach's are excellent. I really liked their Air on G and Harpsichord Concerto in particular. It was also very enjoyable to watch them play the impressionists' pieces. They played them very peacefully and beautifully.

The sound is very clear and rich featuring DTS/DD 5.1 & PCM. Vision is also great with 16x9 enhanced widescreen. If you are familiar with the classical works, you will like this dvd a lot. If you aren't but you like jazz and/or cross-over, you will probably like it still. Highly recommended!

This is definantly worth the price.

The production quality is superb (sound and video). The playing is excellent and the arrangments are superb and sublime.

Excellent background music too.

I saw a cut of this video on Classic Arts Showcase and it was so good I sought out the full DVD. It's a little pricey but really delivers the goods. Every aspect is top drawer. Sight, sound and setting are perfect. Every cut is a joy to behold.

Loussier's superb touch on the piano and gift for arranging complicated classical pieces into light, though not lightweight, jazz renditions is simply sublime. All the pieces are familiar even to the untrained ear but will by no means short-change anyone in-the-know. Being a big Debussy fan, I liked Arabesque best but every cut is delightful.

It didn't play on my main DVD player but I think it's just a case of that machine growing old. It plays on all the other machines. Other than that it was well worth the twenty-three bucks.

This DVD is about as good as Loussier gets. Apart from Jaques living up to expectations, the video and audio quality are superb. Excellent choice of items. Recorded live in Bach's own church-St Thomas's, this is a truly historic recording. Highly recommended.

Format: DVD
Like most of the other reviewers, I deeply enjoyed this DVD, especially the Bach. I kept imagining the spirit of Johann Sebastian hovering over the St. Thomas church in Leipzig, happy and pleased by the sounds calling him back.
Surprisingly, I could not find - anywhere - a simple list of the pieces played, so in case it is helpful to anyone, I have made one myself, titles taken directly from the DVD.
J.S. Bach - Fugue #5 in D major
J.S. Bach - Gavotte in D major
J.S. Bach - Pastorale in c minor
J.S. Bach - Air on a G string
J.S. Bach - Brandenburg Concerto #5 (1. Allegro; 2. Affettuoso; 3. Allegro)
Debussy - Arabesque
Debussy - L'isle joyeuse
Satie - Gymnopedie #1
Ravel - Bolero
J.S. Bach - Concerto in D for harpsichord (3. Allegro)

Enjoy!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By I. Giles TOP 500 REVIEWER on January 26, 2013
Format: DVD
This 2004 concert, filmed in St Thomas' Church, Leipzig marks the 254th anniversary of Bach's death and the venue was purposefully chosen to celebrate the venue so closely connected with a protracted period of time when Bach was the organist at the church.

Bach, as many will know, was especially renowned for his improvisational skills which would have been very apparent at this church. It is therefore fitting that Jacques Loussier, also known for his improvisational skills and especially as related to works of Bach, should perform this concert at the venue.

The trio, having previously been disbanded, was reformed in 1985 and it is that group that plays here. The program is more far reaching than that played by the original group as Loussier has extended his musical improvisations into the 20th century world of the French composers, Debussy, Ravel and Satie.

Thus we hear his improvisations on two of Debussy's piano compositions, the Arabesque (from two Arabesques), and L'isle Joyeuse. Satie's Gymnopedie for piano, the first of the three that he wrote, then follows. The French set concludes with an extended improvisation based on Ravel's orchestral Bolero. This is an extended piece for the trio and at nearly 13 minutes is the longest single piece on the disc.

The bonus feature is an interview with Jacques Loussier in which he gives a background history to his style of playing and its development and extension into the French world as above from the earlier Bach world. During this interview he is at pains to stress that the improvisations are very much worked-through compositions with an improvisatory feel but actually being fixed compositions.
