By J Scott Morrison HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on January 21, 2010
This DVD is in two parts, each almost equal to the other in time: a formal concert of the Piano and Wind Quintets of Beethoven and Mozart (four members of Ensemble Wien-Berlin, with James Levine at the piano); and a documentary about Ensemble Wien-Berlin with many parts but featuring a great deal of music-making. Both parts were recorded in 1986, three years after the Ensemble Wien-Berlin was founded. At that time the Ensemble Berlin-Wien consisted of Hansjörg Schellenberger, oboe; Günter Högner, horn; Karl Leister, clarinet; Milan Turkovic, bassoon; and flutist Wolfgang Schulz (who appears only in the second half of the DVD; he is not needed in the two piano quintets).

The formal concert was filmed at Schloss Schonbrunn, Salzburg. The ornate room in which they play is unfortunately fairly dark and one can't really make out much of the architecture and decoration, but no matter: the music is the thing. The DVD begins with the Beethoven Quintet for Piano and Winds, Op. 16. Interestingly the seating for this and the Mozart differs. For the Beethoven the wind players sit downstage from the piano (l. to r.: oboe, bassoon, horn, clarinet), in the Mozart they are upstage and in different order (l. to r.: bassoon, horn, clarinet, oboe). It actually appears that there are better sightlines between Levine and the winds in the latter configuration. The Beethoven is really almost more like a piano concerto with wind accompaniment, at least when compared to the more integrated Mozart. James Levine, one must remember, has always been a magnificent pianist and he is certainly in fine form in both works. Both works are genial, charming (but with some darker passages).
