Editorial Reviews

Based on the amphitheater in the ancient Greek city of Epidaurus, and nestled in a natural valley, the Waldbuhne theater seats 22,000 in leafy comfort and remains one of Berlin's favorite open air concert venues, with magnificent views of the stage. World class conductors lead the Berlin Philharmonic in evening concerts of popular Italian, French, Russian and American favorites.

Conducted by the celebrated James Levine, the 1999 Waldbühne concert for the Berlin Philharmonic features music by Richard Strauss and Richard Wagner. The orchestra is joined by the accomplished Canadian tenor Ben Heppner, who is renowned for his electrifying Wagner performances. The program includes Strauss' waltzes from Der Rosenkavalier and Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries, adding real drama to this spectacular open-air event.

This DVD was a HUGE disappointment. The promise of an exciting and wonderful concert by the magnificent James Levine turned out to be a farce. The fault was NOT with the Berlin Philharmoniker or the conductor, but with the sound engineer, who had a mind of his own. Like old-time radio engineers, who pulled back the loud sections of music, he (or she) decided that some sections of the music were just too much for home listeners to stand. I have hundreds of DVDs, many of the Berlin Philharmoniker, and none of them have this problem. The excitement of the music was destroyed by the distortion of the music and its dynamics. I am certain that Levine and certainly not the producers of this DVD are aware of the problem i have
described. It never should have been released. It is not the fault of my DVD player or sound system. Three friends also have
complained to me of the same thing.

Excellent performance by the Berlin Philharmonic conducted by James Levine. If your are a fan of the music composed by Richard Wagner and Richard Strauss you will certainly enjoy this in the park concert. I found the DVD sound quality to be very good. The DVD was ordered after viewing the concert on Medici.tv.
