Product Description

Some of Russia s greatest musicians are brought together in this magical 54min performance that spans two continents. Russian Bohemia is a moving and passionate journey through this vast, culturally diverse country. Its music tradition dates back thousands of years and carries with it a very gripping drama that engulfs its people, its history and its landscape. These performances include selections from the Moscow Male Choir conducted by Valery Rybin, violinist protégé Egor Gzechishnikov and the Kremlin Capella, amongst others. Filmed in Russia in some previously restricted locations including inside the Kremlin; and in Australia at the St Paul's Cathederal and Melbourne Zoo's Butterfly House, Russian Bohemia is a sweeping look at a nation which constantly gives the rest of the world some of its finest artists and musicians ....

Sometimes words cannot properly describe something so beautiful. This is one of those times.

I bought this DVD on the strength, majesty and beauty of a magnificent a capella song I'd found on Youtube. The harmony of their voices is without equal. Like many people who had commented on the sublime beauty, I know I was not alone in wondering 'where can I find more!'. It didn't matter that I didn't understand one word, it was sufficient for me to appreciate their voices.

One of the members of the choir gave a link to this DVD where I immediately ordered it, and I recommend anyone who loves beauty to buy this DVD. You don't even have to understand the words because the beauty describes itself.

I bought this after trying in vain to find a DVD of the St. Petersburg Male Choir and on reading the earlier rave review for this DVD.

Unfortunately, I deduce the rave review refers largely/solely to one song on the DVD - that of the "The Kremlin Capella" singing the "The little bell". It is indeed outstanding. However sadly that is the only song they sing on the DVD.

The DVD is mainly based on the Moscow Male Choir Conducted by Valery Rybin. They are good and they sing a couple of good songs but, in my opinion, they are not as good as the St. Petersburg Male Choir.

It is my impression that the producers of this DVD had insufficient material of the Moscow Male Choir and decided to cobble together a range of other "Russian" material to produce a DVD on the cheap. Very fortunately they included "The little bell". They included footage of Russian people in the snow etc which is a nice touch.

In fact, having just done a bit of research on the internet, the producers (Storyteller productions) appear to make documentaries and one gets the impression that this compilation was made originally for TV and then put out as a DVD. The DVD starts with a male voice saying that "tonight we are going to present". I am guessing that the present DVD is a blend of two film/documentaries, one called "Russian Bohemia" (presumably containing the Moscow Male Choir material) and a second called "Secret Treasures of the Kremlin" (which appears to have included the exquisite Kremlin Capella song). This may help explain some of the DVD's features, or lack thereof. The producers point out that this is "more than a performance video (?), it is a rare opportunity to feel the pulse of this country". That is a more positive way of describing the DVD and its contents.

Low quality video. So, so sound. But no alternative exist.
