Editorial Reviews

Composer and conductor Pierre Boulez is renowned for his interpretations of twentieth century music, and especially the work of Igor Stravinsky. His inspired performance in December 2008 of The Firebird and Fireworks, with the dynamic Orchestre de Paris, proved to be no exception to this rule. Held inside the spectacular Louvre Pyramid before a rapt audience of two thousand people, it was a truly extraordinary musical event. This release also features a documentary of a presentation with Boulez, in which he discusses the music and genesis of the ballet in depth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Never been to Paris... June 1, 2010
I haven't been to Paris. The Louvre ranks high on the list of places in the world that I very much would like to see. Igor Stravinsky's Firebird Suite is one of the most challenging and beautiful pieces of music created in the 20th century. To combine both of these masterpieces into one is a stroke of pure genius. Add on top Pierre Boulez conducting and you have struck gold.

The "Live at the Louvre" DVD by ideale audience is a sumptuous feast for both the eyes and ears. The Orchestre de Paris fly's through a beautiful version of Stravinsky's imaginative and challenging ballet score. All the while set in the amazing architecture of the Louvre Pyramid the angles and arches a perfect background for the sharp twist and jagged turns of the music.

Having only seen the Louvre in person, I had no idea that it would sound as beautiful as it looks. The acoustics of the room are spectacularly captured. I must say that I am extremely envious of the audience sitting on the floor next to the orchestra that evening. What a show they were privileged to see. However, they were only able to see the performance once. With this wonderful DVD I will be able to visit the Louvre and watch over and over again.
