From the Back Cover

With stunning seaside vistas, fountains, statues, vineyards, ancient streets, and hillside churches, the rich flavor of the Italian countryside echoes through Johann Sebastian Bach's passionate and moving music.

This volume of the Naxos Musical Journey features Bach's evocative Violin Concerto in E Major, Violin Concerto in A Minor, Double Violin Concerto in D Minor, and Air on the G String, set against the breathtaking landscapes of Tivoli, Arezzo, Cinque Terre, Lake Bolsena, Lucca, Civita Village, and the famed vineyard landscape of Chianti. These indelible images form an experience for the ages, as memorable as the music they inspired. 56 minutes.

By F. Behrens HALL OF FAME on June 5, 2000
Designed for the ill-fated Laser Disc format, the series of DVDs titled "A Naxos Musical Journey" is now represented by the first six offerings issued by DVD International: <Bach> (DVDI 0991) with three of his works and the scenery of four parts of Italy, <Handel> (DVDI 0992) with his "Water Music" and "Fireworks" Suites and the scenery of parts of England, <Italian Festival> (DVDI 0993) with the music of several composers [only one of which is Italian], <Mozart> (DVDI 0994) with his Symphonies No. 49 and 28 and three overtures and the scenery of the Southern Tyrol and Austria, <Spanish Festival> (DVDI 0995) with the music of Chabrier, Glinka, Massenet, and Rimski-Korsakov , and finally <Vivaldi> (DVDI 0996) with his "Four Seasons" and a Concerto in D minor and the scenery of northern Europe and Scotland.
It is strange that native composers were not chosen in so many cases, especially in the one dedicated to Spain where we have two Russian and two French selections, however good they might be. But the most famous Swiss music ever written was composed by Rossini, so what the hey!
First the minuses. These sets were designed for the music and the visual without any reference to specifics. By this I mean, there are no subtitles to let you know where in Europe you are or what music is being played. Since there is a "Random Order" option, your player will not display the track being shown. I found this quite annoying at first viewing and had to keep my eye on the back of the DVD case to try to find where I was musically--where I was geographically was quite impossible.

...you get Dolby Digital or DTS quality sound! Not only do you get the Violin Concerto in E Major, BMV 1042, Violin Concerto in A Minor, BWV 1041, Double Violin Concerto in D Minor, BWV 1043 and Air on the G String in excellent audio quality which surpasses CD's, you also get stunning seaside vistas, fountains, statues, vineyards, ancient streets and hillside churches and the Italian countryside. I would just love to travel Europe but due to the excessive cost that is not possible right now. ...I get beautiful music and high quality video of all the places I'd love to visit right into my home to watch with my family. The only problem is which Naxos Journey to take? I couldn't decide so I purchased all six and love them all but the Mozart, Vivaldi and Spanish Festival are our favorites.
Highly recommended.

This DVD is one of the most enjoyable in the Naxos Musical Journey series. While it may seem a bit incongruous for Bach's violin gems to be set against various Italian backgrounds, both the music and the scenery are highly enjoyable. The music is well played and well recorded, and the video direction shows both good taste and imagination.
