Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Mozart's Symphonies No. 40 and No. 28 are powerful and dramatic works in their own right. Combine a fabulous performance of these symphonies (by Barry Wordsworth and the Capella Istropolitana) with a spectacular visual tour of an Italian monastery and an Austrian city, and you've got a Naxos masterpiece. To the strains of Symphony No. 40 in G Minor, viewers tour the Neustift Monastery in Southern Tyrol, Italy. Breathtaking views of the outer walls, halls, immensely ornate chapel, and extensive library abound. The photography is crystal clear, the lighting superb, and the pace and path ideal. Missing completely are the bustling, noisy crowds so frequently encountered in real-life travel. Symphony No. 28 ushers in a change of scenery, this time a look at the Austrian Tyrol's capital city, Innsbruck. From the spectacular vista of the city landscape to an in-depth look at some of the city's finest architecture, this is again a journey you won't want to miss. Finally, overtures from Il re pastore, Die Entfuhrung aus dem Serail, and La clemenza di Tito are paired with contemplative views of ducks at a pond's edge and the ornate interiors and exteriors of several Austrian churches.

DVD specifics include a choice of DTS 6 channel Surround Sound, Dolby Digital Surround Sound, and Dolby Digital Stereo 2.0. Additional features include repeat and shuffle play options and previews for other Naxos offerings. Only the credits are a bit sparse. What a wonderful addition to your DVD collection! --Tami Horiuchi

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice indeed July 20, 2000
By Chris
Once again another of the Naxos range of Musical Journey DVDs has proved to be very enjoyable. The photography as usual is superb and we are taken around the Southern Tyrol in Italy while Symphony #40 is playing, but for the remainder of the disk, the "journey" is around Innsbruck in Austria. This is just a bit surprising considering that all the pieces in this collection are composed by Mozart who was born in Salzburg which is just a short 100 miles to the east of Innsbruck. Some views of the old city where his house is situated as well as the house itself would have surely been appropriate. Nevertheless, what we are shown is very nice indeed.
One word of criticism is that all the DVDs seem to be only 56 minutes in length. Considering how much will go on a DVD, this seems to be a bit miserly by Naxos, especially when one realises that many, if not most Naxos audio CDs run longer than 56 minutes.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bothering scenes March 9, 2001
By A Customer
Good music, great scenes, suddenly...sadist scenes appears...one of them is a picture of a woman being cut...someone with a knife is holding the woman body part...really ruin the serenity. I detest that scene. After that I never turn on my TV everytime I play that DVD, I just listen.
I just can't understand, sadist scenes in something that should make you peaceful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mozart - A Naxos Musical Journey June 19, 2000
I love the peaceful scenes of this title and the musics of Mozart. It is most keepable title I've ever seen. If you like classical music, especially Mozart,this title is the best choice.

2.0 out of 5 stars like watching a neighbor's home video January 30, 2001
just imagine one of your neighbors wins a trip to austria and a new video camera...you unfortunately have to later sit through the result...this is such a huge disappointment...of course, the music is beautiful, and the sound is superb, but the camerawork is vapid and unrelated to the theme...long, boring focus on not particularly interesting architecture---there are lengthy shots of a monastery in the tyrol that is far overdone, full of inane shots of damaged ornamentation and not particularly interesting courtyard views...later the scene jumps to innsbruck, but, again, unbearably long focuses on one or two buildings...and somehow they were able to do all the filming at a time when no one was moving in the streets...all in all this is terrible, and a terrific waste of money...it would have been immeasurably more interesting simply watching the orchestra perform...
