Mariss Jansons is one of the most influential conductors of our age. In 2012 the charismatic Latvian musician conducted his second New Year Concert in Vienna, an honour that very few conductors have enjoyed. For the present documentary portrait, the film maker Robert Neumüller observed Jansons at work in Amsterdam, Riga, St Petersburg, Vienna and Salzburg. The film shows Jansons working with his various orchestras, including rehearsals for the 2012 New Year Concert, and also explores his private life, resulting in a number of fascinating insights into Jansons’ artistic development and philosophy. By way of a bonus, this release features a complete performance of Mahler’s Second Symphony with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra under Mariss Jansons.

Music is the Language of Heart and Soul is the only available documentary about Mariss Jansons from his early days till today. Jansons is one of the leading conductors, performing with the most important orchestras in the world. This blu-ray disc includes a performance with Mariss Jansons and Concertgebouw Orchestra of Mahler. “Mariss Jansons is one of the best orchestra builders around.” The New York Times “No conductor has a more extraordinary story to tell than Mariss Jansons.” The Independent

This special DVD presentation of Jimi Hendrix: Electric Church presents the legendary guitarist in full flight at the 1970 Atlanta Pop Festival before the largest US audience of his career.
This critically acclaimed film combines color, 16mm multi-camera footage of Hendrix’s unforgettable July 4, 1970 concert in its original performance sequence together with a new documentary that traces his journey to the festival amidst the dark shadow of civil rights unrest, the unrelenting toll of the Vietnam War and a burgeoning festival culture that drew together young people across the country who were inspired by the Woodstock festival.
The film details Hendrix’s integral role in drawing nearly 500,000 people to his Electric Church- a dusty, scorching hot pecan orchard in Byron, Georgia some 100 miles south of Atlanta. Together with Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell and bassist Billy Cox, Jimi skillfully blended favorites such as “Purple Haze,” “All Along The Watchtower,” and “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)” with confident renditions of new songs such as “Freedom” and “Straight Ahead” that had not yet been released on album. As a colorful fireworks display stretched overhead across the night sky, Jimi performed the “Star Spangled Banner” to the wild delight of the massive audience.
The performance footage of the Experience has been carefully restored from the original negative in high definition. The audio soundtrack includes stereo and 5.1 surround sound mixes by Eddie Kramer directly from the original master tapes.
This expanded DVD features three songs not seen in the television broadcast. This includes, “Red House,” “Freedom” and a special presentation of “Room Full Of Mirrors” that features all of the existing performance footage combined with never before seen photographs of the Atlanta performance.

After having been released in a couple different configurations (not counting bootlegs), Jimi Hendrix’s performance at the Isle of Wight Festival has been released yet again, and it’s a bit of a mixed bag. Hendrix is plagued by equipment problems and audience expectations, and the entire festival had degenerated into something of a debacle by the time Jimi hit the stage as headliner. There is a loose, at times sloppy, feel to the proceedings, with Hendrix being pretty casual with the lyrics, particularly in “Spanish Castle Magic.” Jimi had long since tired of playing his smash hits, even commenting at one point, “Y’all want to hear all those old songs, man? Damn, man. We’re just trying to get some other things together.” The problem was that much of the new material was under-rehearsed for a live setting, giving some of the newer songs like “Dolly Dagger” more of a jam feel. In addition, Hendrix’s amplifiers are picking up transmissions from radio and security personnel throughout the show, which actually works well on “Machine Gun,” but is distracting elsewhere. That being said, collectors will still be happy with this release. The sound is fantastic, and the packaging and booklet are filled with great photos. Jimi’s guitar playing is superb in spots, and his wonderful sense of humor is on display throughout. The fact is that Hendrix died way too early, so any great-sounding, even mediocre shows will still be celebrated by fans for the moments of brilliance they contain. Band of Gypsys is still the first pick for live Hendrix, but those who crave more will be quite pleased with Blue Wild Angel: Live at the Isle of Wight. –Sean Westergaard

Rather than drudging up scandal and outworn hypothesis about his lifestyle and ultimate death, here we look at Hendrix as the master of electric guitar, as told by a selection of the world’s greatest musicians in all new and exclusive interviews. Contributers include Dave Mason (Traffic) Eric Clapton, Mick Taylor, Eric Burdon (The Animals) Paul Rodgers (Bad Company) Ginger Baker (Cream) Bev Bevan (ELO) Stephen Stills (Crosby Stills & Nash) to name but a few. Some were his mentors, some his contemporaries and admirers of his incredible talent, and those who emerged as new talent as a result of his influence. All happy to come forward and explain why Hendrix’s work remains at the zenith of rock music to this day.
• Moving beyond the icon and the myth, this DVD brings alive the images and music that Jimi Hendrix evoked from his very soul, using the instrument as, he put it, his “personal diary” This style evoked a home-grown and raw, uncensored sensuality, which indeed was his nature and that of his music, as if he were his own muse.
• Narrated by Slash (Guns N Roses/Velvet Revolver) a longtime Hendrix acolyte, this film is less a biography than the first film ever to focus on the music itself and the impetus of the master who created it.

Belcea Quartet – Beethoven: The Complete String Quartets – Plus Documentary (2020) [4 Blu-ray Discs]

Released Date: 2020
Label: EuroArts
Genre: Classical
Duration: 09:27:17 + 01:02:16 (Documentary)

Performers:
Belcea String Quartet
Corina Belcea, violin

Available again in a repackaged format for the Beethoven Year 2020. This Belcea Quartet box brings a high-definition audiovisual reference recording of Beethoven´s Complete String Quartets to the market! Since 2006, the only filmed concert performance of Beethoven’s quartets available has been the Alban Berg Quartet’s DVD in 4:3 format. With this edition, released on the occasion of the Belcea Quartet’s 20th anniversary, EuroArts fills a niche for a high definition quality audiovisual production of Beethoven´s String Quartets available on Blu-ray.

The ensemble embarked on the mammoth task of playing the complete Beethoven string quartet cycle within a space of 12 days, recorded at the Wiener Konzerthaus in 2012. Every concert featured one work each from the early, middle and late quartets, including perhaps the most exciting of all works by Beethoven: the Opus 133, the “Große Fuge“ which he wrote as the finale of the quartet Opus 130. “This music, just sounds forever « avant-garde », I think in a way that perhaps no music written after the “Große Fuge“ manages to sound to this day”, explains the quartet’s viola player Krzysztof Chorzelski. In this recording, the Belcea Quartet performs the “Große Fuge” in one piece with Opus 130, which makes this performance even more thrilling.

This extraordinary edition not only includes the Belcea’s complete recordings of String Quartets from Vienna Konzerthaus but also a 47-minute bonus documentary “On the Paths of the Beethoven String Quartets” which brings us closer to the ensemble´s reflections on Beethoven´s quartets as well as on this unique project.

This wonderful arrangement was transcribed by Merlin Patterson in 1997/98. Before then, there was no complete transcript of The Planets suite that existed for concert band. Holst had personally arranged but not transcribed Mars and Jupiter for concert band ensemble, nor had he transcribed any of the other movements in the suite for a concert band ensemble. This recording by the U.S. Marine Band is special because it’s a complete and true transcription of the original suite. Patterson has taken everything from that orchestral suite, changing or omitting nothing, and presenting it in its original key.
