As much as I enjoyed this program, there are a few minor reasons why I did not give it five stars. First of all, it would be even more informative if the music playing in the background were identified. And as much as I enjoyed the theme, it did become something of a mind worm after a while, and I would prefer hearing more music by the composers themselves.
Having traveled to Leipzig last year, I was also surprised that the Classical Destinations crew did not film the stunning pink and green interior of the St. Nicholas Church, or include the famous Magnus portrait of Mendelssohn that hangs in the composer's home. But this is just me being picky.
All nitpicking aside, this is a wonderful program worth every dollar. I eagerly look forward to seeing Classical Destinations II!

Good photography. Wish there was more music included with the stories of the composers. However it just motivates you to listen to more of the classical works. Read morePublished 18 months ago by mzygmunt

When I miss European travel, I play this, and then I don't feel so bad. Callow's commentary and the scenery as well as Australian violinist is not to be missed.Published on December 10, 2013 by Stephanie Sawicki
