"Musical tour of Europe "
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

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!

Description

CLASSICAL DESTINATIONS introduces a new concept in travel and history documentaries, exploring Europe's most spectacular cities and landscapes while luxuriating in the great classical music composed within their precincts. Viewers will learn about the lives of the master musicians, the cities they lived in, and how their work reflects the very same surroundings we see today.
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.
