Chronicling the first meeting of South Africa with its favourite British band, Mumford & Sons, award-winning director Dick Carruthers gets to the very heart of what makes Mumford & Sons such a special act. Filmed live against the beautiful Pretorian outback, the band performs their most recent material and classic hits in front of an exhilarated crowd. Filmed in stunning 4K and presented in DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio and Dolby Atmos.

Not since Paul Simon set out to find Graceland has a musical ensemble had so fruitful a time in South Africa. What started out for Mumford & Sons as a modest plan to stage a handful of gigs for about 5,000 people, tops, became a week-long jaunt in which they performed before 85,000 adoring fans. Along the way, as the group dropped in on Cape Town (three nights at the Grand Parade), Durban and Pretoria (two nights at the Monument Amphitheatre), they also embarked on an experimental collaboration with the local musicians they toured with. Entering the studio with Baba Maal, The Very Best and Beatenberg, Mumford and co emerged, after two all-day-and-all-nighters, with the five-track mini-album Johannesburg.

This fertile period in the band’s career is captured on the live DVD Live From South Africa: Dust And Thunder. Given newly minted Johannesburg tracks ‘Wona’ and ‘There Will Be Time’ an airing alongside high points from their latest full-length, Wilder Mind, and Mumford classics such as ‘I Will Wait’, the concert recording finds the group at the top of their game, truly connecting with an audience wholly ready to embrace them.

Under the direction of the principal conductor and artistic director of the Salzburg Mozart Week, Marc Minkowski, the Musiciens du Louvre perform on two of Mozart’s original instruments. Mozart’s Violin Concerto and his Piano Concerto in A major are played on instruments that were once in the composer’s possession. Thibault Noally plays the Violin Concerto on a violin from the workshop of Pietro Antonio Dalla Costa and “conjures up Romantic brilliance from the well maintained instrument”, then Francesco Corti brings Mozart’s fortepiano to life again, thereby spreading “collective Mozart happiness all round” (Salzburger Nachrichten).

Marc Minkowski ist bei der renommierten Salzburger Mozartwoche Chefdirigent und künstlerischer Direktor in Personalunion. Mit seinem Orchester Les musiciens du Louvre legt er seit je her größten Wert auf musikhistorisch informierte Aufführungspraxis. Diese Blu-Ray/DVD jedoch bietet ein besonders spannendes Erlebnis. Es ist eine klangliche und visuelle Begegnung mit zwei Originalinstrumenten aus dem Nachlass Wolfgang Amadeus Mozarts. Thibault Noelly spielt Mozarts berühmte Dalla Costa-Geige, während Francesco Corti Mozarts eigenes Fortepiano wieder zum Leben erweckt. Das Violinkonzert KV 219 und das Klavierkonzert KV 488 werden auf dieser Produktion durch umfangreiches Bonusmaterial ergänzt (darunter unter anderem Mozarts Violinsonate KV 304).

Recorded live during the Mozartwoche Salzburg, 2015.

Live Concert Film Capture Definitive, 26-Song Performance Recorded at the Fabulous Forum in September 2018 Featuring First Eagles’ Recordings with Vince Gill and Deacon Frey. LIVE FROM THE FORUM MMXVIII, a Scheme Engine production directed by Nick Wickham, was filmed on 14 4K cameras. The set captures definitive live performances of the band’s most iconic hits (“Hotel California,” “Take It Easy,” “Life In The Fast Lane,” “Desperado”) and beloved album tracks (“Ol’ 55, “Those Shoes”), along with some of the individual members’ biggest solo smashes (Henley’s “Boys Of Summer,” Walsh’s “Rocky Mountain Way,” and Gill’s “Don’t Let Our Love Start Slippin’ Away”).

Eagles: Live from the Forum MMXVIII is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Rhino Entertainment with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.34:1. While detail levels are generally good throughout this presentation, this is one of the darkest live concerts I’ve seen recently, just from a standpoint of stage lighting. The band is frequently bathed in deep blues which tend to deflate fine detail considerably, and a couple of moments that are lit in deep red tones come very close to posterizing. Otherwise, though, there is a good accounting of the players and audience, with above average fine detail levels in close-ups.

Eagles: Live from the Forum MMXVIII features DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and LPCM 2.0 tracks, though like a lot of concert video releases on Blu-ray, the disc has been authored to default to the stereo track. While both tracks offer sterling fidelity, the surround track significantly opens things up from the get go, even with regard to the brief shot of a jet flying overhead during some establishing shots. The soundstage is nicely wide but still focused on the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track, and the vocals are to my ears mixed perfectly.

Bizet’s Les Pêcheurs de perles, set in Sri Lanka, is known above all for its unforgettable duet for tenor and baritone, but it its score is full of delightful and dramatic music. When recently staged at the Metropolitan Opera in New York it proved a major success, both for the production by Penny Woolcock and the musical performance, conducted by Paolo Noseda, with (once again) Diana Damrau as the priestess Leïla and, as the two men competing for love, the tenor Matthew Polenzani (Nadir) and the baritone Mariusz Kwiecien (Zurga).

Woolcock’s concept brought the production up to date, with photographic and video references to the 2004 tsunami, and offered a superb ‘aquatic’ spectacle during the overture: the whole stage appeared to be beneath the Indian Ocean and acrobatic divers ‘swam’ down from the surface (located in the flies of the theatre).

As The New York Times wrote: “Ms. Woolcock’s updating of “The Pearl Fishers” works beautifully … Mr. Kwiecien is an ideal Zurga. Singing with burnished sound and lyrical richness, he looks like a natural leader, handsome, confident and something of an operator. …Mr. Polenzani makes a poignantly believable Nadir … [In the duet] their ardent, soaring performance, supported by the glowing playing Mr. Noseda drew from the orchestra, brought fresh urgency to the familiar music … Mr. Polenzani sang [his] haunting aria of remembrance with wondrous lyrical tenderness while conveying the music’s gently swaying gait. And if you think it’s impossible for a tenor to cap phrases of a dreamy aria with melting, pianissimo high notes, report to the Met to hear Mr. Polenzani demonstrate how this is done superlatively …Ms. Damrau brings brilliant coloratura agility, radiant sound and charisma galore to the role of Leila … Mr. Noseda conducts as if every moment of the music matters deeply.”

Kasper Holten’s production (The Royal Opera’s first) of Król Roger (King Roger) brought the opera back to the London stage after an absence of almost 40 years. Karol Szymanowski’s masterpiece powerfully presents the dilemmas of culture versus nature and man versus beast, and movingly depicts King Roger’s inner struggles as he moves from an impossible life of repressed desires to the other extreme, giving in to his own demons. Meanwhile, Roger’s people, seduced by the promises of the mysterious Shepherd, are drawn towards totalitarianism and repression. Antonio Pappano conducts Szymanowksi’s opulent and beautiful score, with a cast including Mariusz Kwiecień as Roger (one of the greatest interpreters of the role today), Saimir Pirgu as the Shepherd, and Georgia Jarman in her Royal Opera debut as Roger’s loving queen Roxana.
“all the imagination of Kasper Holten’s production coheres compellingly, and Antonio Pappano shapes an extremely lucid performance that somehow manages to be taut and lush at the same time. Mariusz Kwiecien’s warm account of the title role shows why he has become today’s ruling King Roger, and Saimir Pirgu is suitably seductive as the Shepherd. Best of all, as Roxana, Georgia Jarman shows how the queen’s Act II vocalise can be one of the most beautiful arias in all opera.” –BBC Music Magazine
Recorded live at the Royal Opera House, 1–19 May 2015.

On time for their 10th anniversary the hard rockers of KISSIN’ DYNAMITE are striking a balance. All members are just in the middle of their twenties, though the group around singer Hannes Braun has seen and achieved a lot since they first appeared on the map in 2006: 5 worldwide released studio albums, extensive touring in Europe and Asia, multiple TOP 20 entries in official German album charts.
KISSIN’ DYNAMITE are known for producing high-quality studio albums, but the band are even more infamous for their energetic, intense live shows. So there is no better way than to celebrate the first ten years of band history with the group’s first ever Live release.“Generation Goodbye – Dynamite Nights” will be available as DVD/2-CD and BluRay/2-CD Digipak and contains 25 songs – incl. all their hits – recorded at their “hometown” show in Stuttgart, Germany, which took place in December 2016. This is pure dynamite!

Tenor Jonas Kaufmann performs in concert at Teatro Carignano in Turin, Italy, accompanied by the Orchestra del Teatro Massimo di Palermo and conductor Asher Fisch. Featured in the concert are performances of Ruggiero Leoncavallo’s ‘Mattinata’, Francesco Sartori’s ‘Con Te Partirò’ and ‘Voglio Vivere Così’ by Giovanni d’Anzi.

‘Italians love to sing. They sing in the street, they sing while they go about their business. It is not just a cliché – in Italy, you see grown-up men just singing while they work, because they want to somehow express their feelings. Music is not only to make you smile, music is to make you think, and sometimes to understand that you’re not the only one carrying great problems with you. By expressing that in a song you can better live with it, because somebody found the right words, the right way to express what you’re feeling at that moment. The songs on this album show the whole range of emotions that italian music is capable of, just like in opera – but opera of course favours the dark moments. Here we have both darkness and light, and even in the darkest moment, the Italian finds a way to put a little bit of powdered sugar on top and to continue finding sweetness in life.’ –Jonas Kaufmann

And There Will Be a Next Time was filmed July 15, 2016 during their stop at the DTE Energy Music Center and features performances of many of their hits. For frontman Joe Elliott, it was an opportunity to showcase the band at this stage in their career at one of those shows where everything went just right.
“I had this idea that we should film one of the shows from the 2016 tour because apart from the ‘Viva Hysteria’ shows, we hadn’t actually had a live performance filmed since 1988,” he said in a press release. “With a new album out that was being so well received, it was just a case of where to do it. From the second the house lights went down, we could see the sun setting from the stage, and the energy from the crowd just seemed to intensify. It was a good choice and a great way to document Def Leppard in 2016.”

In March 2011 Japan was beset by a huge earthquake, a monstrous tsunami and the subsequent meltdown of the Fukushima nuclear plant. In the autumn of 2011, despite advice to the contrary, Aerosmith brought their Back On The Road tour to Japan, a country with which they’d always had a special relationship. The Japanese fans came out in their droves and Aerosmith responded with some of the finest gigs of their distinguished career. This film follows the band on that tour combining full length live tracks with behind the scenes footage which is at times touching and emotional and at others humorous and insightful. More than anything else it demonstrates the Japanese fans love affair with Aerosmith and their music.
