This is a fantastic documentary about Classical European composers. Makes you feel like digging out the passport and jetting off to some of those places!
Narrated by the celebrated British actor and music expert Simon Callow, CLASSICAL DESTINATIONS mixes documentary, music performance, real life soap-opera (and grand opera!), philosophy and tragic-comic whimsy in a moving visual tapestry combining stunning new High Definition images and an unforgettable Decca Records soundtrack which features the world's greatest orchestras and soloists. Vivaldi's Venice, the Salzburg of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the fjords of Norway evoked in music by Edvard Grieg, and the Vienna that waltzed to Johann Strauss…all have never looked - or sounded - better.
