Symphony: Live in Vienna CD+DVD, Live
Top Customer Reviews
Sarah's costumes and hair are gorgeous and she is definitely glowing and looking more pretty than ever. There is one small difference from the studio recording of "Fleurs Du Mal" and the recording on the dicsc. What I'm saying is...Sarah doesn't do that high-pitched vocalise while the violin solo comes in in the intro of the song, compared to the studio album recording. I wonder if it would've wrecked the intro to the song if she did sing it while moving down the middle aisle.
"Sanvean" written by Lisa Gerrard (Dead Can Dance) is a beautiful vocalise consisting of no lyrics but just sounds. That is what I love about this song. It's just so haunting and original, and Sarah does it very well, even if some say she's too breathy. "Canto Della Terra" is beautiful and Alessandro Safina looks & sounds amazing as Sarah's duet partner. Together, they blow everyone away with their breathtaking live rendition of the song. "Atessa" is very pretty and much better than expected. It really doesn't appear they used any playback for this concert, meaning Sarah used her own voice for the whole recording.Read more ›
My only question is the point of the CD, since the songs are performed so closely to the studio versions on the Symphony CD, with almost the exact track-listing. Only the bonus track Vide Cor Meum, made me buy the more expensive CD/DVD combo. That's dirty play, in my opinion, cuz of course the fans will plunk down the extra cash... but I guess I'll forgive Sarah almost anything.
The new song, btw, is incredible... a haunting classical piece featuring Gregorian singing back-up along with the Crouch End Choir. Eerie and lovely.
