Barbara Cook Sings Mostly Sondheim (Live at Carnegie Hall 2001)
Everyone Should Whistle
After being privileged to attend this concert, I had to own the CD. Once a lyric coloratura and the original Cunegonde in Bernstein's Candide, Ms. Cook has become (in her 70s) a true diva, blessed with a velvety, warm sound. Every note has meaning. Her high B-flat on "Ice Cream" is still the envy of any soprano today. Everyone should whistle after hearing the superb performances on this CD. ...
Lang Lang Live at Carnegie Hall
Deutsche Grammophon, 2004
Pianistic Glory at its best!!!!
Wow!! I have read several of the 'negative' reviews here and can only conclude (after viewing the DVD four times and counting) that what may be going on with these folks is something they themselves simply don't understand (about themselves!). They cannot or will not accept that here with Lang Lang, as with Evgeny Kissin (ever notice?) the world is being introduced to the next and even greater ...
Vladimir Horowitz at Carnegie Hall: Private Collection:Schumann,Chopin,Liszt & Balakirev
SONY CLASSICS, 2009
Fantastic is the only word !
If you know Horowitz's virtuosity,you will not be disappointed. If you don't, you will gasp at his marvelous technique and the shimmering beauty of his interpretation.BUY THE CD.
Midori Live at Carnegie Hall
A Master shines !!!
What can be said about Midori that a fan doesn't already know ? Again, her unique, beautiful style is on display. I've listened to this Strauss Sonata many many times and I feel Midori has created a miracle on a CD. Such emotion, timbre, richness of tone... a violin can NOT sound better... I luv Midori..... !!
Vladimir Horowitz At Carnegie Hall-The Private Collection: Mussorgsky & Liszt
SONY CLASSICS, 2009
Great performances: One reservation
I agree with the very informative comments and opinions in the other review of this release. My copy, also poorly packaged, was without any background information about Horowitz or these or other potential performances in this series. There were no performance dates for either work - only a one-liner about private tapes recorded between 1945-51. Shame on BMG Sony marketing staffs for this ...
A Celebration of Leonard Bernstein: Opening Night at Carnegie Hall 2008
San Francisco Sym, 2009
A balanced look at Leonard Bernstein
Everyone is familiar with the popular Bernstein offerings, "West Side Story" and "On the Town" to name a few. This superb concert offers a carefully constructed cross section of the work of this gifted man along with interviews with the soloists and the Jamie Bernstein (his daughter) to provide a complete picture. The orchestra and Mr. Tilson Thomas are probably the best exponents of ...
Lang Lang: Live at Carnegie Hall
Deutsche Grammophon, 2004
I GOT THIS MAINLY FOR THE LISZT 'DON GIOVANNI' FANTASY, & I WASNT DISAPPOINTED! HE PLAYED THIS FANTASICALLY DIFFICULT PIECE WITH VERVE & BRAVADO--UNBELIEVABLE. HE SHOWED HE CAN PLAY ANYTHING IN A MASTERLY FASHION-- A GREAT PIANIST.
Paul Robeson Live at Carnegie Hall
Vanguard Records, 1990
One of the best, and latest, of the Robeson recordings...
This concert came along in 1958, when Paul's passport was restored and he was allowed to travel and make a living again, after several years of being on the Communist blacklist. His joy at performing once more for his traditional audience comes through in every track. That same year, he did a concert at his brother's church in Harlem, and when Columbia Records issued that one, it had another ...
Bel Canto Society, 2005
Great Music, Not Much of a Plot Though
Edgar Ulmer was the king of B-movie directors, and this one was definitely one of his best. The story, for those who don't know it, is about a lady named Nora (played by the brilliant and versatile Marsha Hunt) and her son Tony. Tony's father dies when he's an infant and Nora raises Tony to be a distinguished pianist. Tony chooses another musical path - that of more popular music, much to ...
Denis Matsuev: The Carnegie Hall Concert
RCA RED SEAL, 2009
Making a bid to be the next Kissin -- and it just might work
When Evgeny Kissin made his sensational Carnegie Hall debut in 1990, the program centered on Schumann, Liszt, Chopin, and Prokofiev. Now we have another BMG/RCA artist who is also a formidable young Russian with Liszt, Schumann, and Prokofiev figuring in a Carnegie Hall recital. Can celebrity strike twice? The 34-year-old Denis Matsuev hasn't reached anything near Kissin's superstardom, but ...
Kino Video, 2001
out of this world
Itis so wonderful,to see all the great artists in one movie,the music that will never leave the walls of carnegie hall,i wish there will be more such wonderful movies in the futer.
Live at Carnegie Hall
What can one say about a recital like this one? You loose words when you front such a stunnig performance in every way. I just wonder how many pianists smashed their instuments in anger and restlessness after having heard that teenager whoop of some of the most demanding works of the piano repertory in such a flawless way. The teqnical bravura is unbelivable and the deep insight and ...
The Cleveland Orchestra at Carnegie Hall [DVD Video]
1 review, ...
The Mercedes of American Orchestras
This DVD preserves the opening concert of the 2006-2007 season at Carnegie Hall, which took place on October 4, 2006. As 2006 was a 'Mozart Year' -- the 250th anniversary of his birth -- and as Franz Welser-Möst is an Austrian, the program includes, in addition to music of Mozart, music by two other Austrian composers, Franz von Suppé and Johann Strauss II. The concert was to have included ...
Concert of the Century: Celebrating the 85th Anniversary of Carnegie Hall
Concert of the Century
Most neglected Dichterliebe by Fischer-Dieskau
All lovers of Lieder seem to have a certain passion and veneration for Fischer-Dieskau's interpretation of Schumann's Dichterliebe. It is appearant that this singer's understanding of the music, his vocal capacity, his beautiful phrasing, clear diction, and his general (outstanding) musicianship enable him to communicate these Lieder in a way nobody else has done before (save maybe Hotter) or ...
Barbara Cook at Carnegie Hall
A dazzling, unforgettable all-time concert classic
I'm close to exhausting my superlatives on Miss Cook - but words can't really do justice to her marvelous recorded output over the years. While virtually every record she made is special in its own way, this particular recording of her "comeback" at Carnegie Hall in 1975 may be her very finest recording. I give it pride of place in my collection as the finest popular music concert recording ...
Arcadi Volodos Live at Carnegie Hall
Volodos is the heir and superior of Horowitz
Time will tell the whole tale but based on this recording Mr. Volodos must be considered one of the greatest pianists to have ever played the instrument. It is interesting to me that much of the criticism that has been leveled against the man comes from a music establishment whose members and stars are plainly unable to play such pieces with anything close to the same speed, precision, and ...

Wynton Marsalis; Kathleen Battle; Frederica von Stade
Kultur Video, 2007
Timeless Christmas Celebration
Every December, I watch this production several times and it never fails to work its magic. Frederica von Stade and Kathleen Battle present a marvelous picture and produce the sound to complement it. Purchase this DVD and you are ensuring yourself an enjoyable evening of viewing that will put you in the holiday spirit and remind you how beautiful Christmas carols can be. And you will likely also ...
Live at Carnegie Hall
Virgin Classics, 2009
The greatest pianist of his generation? Come and listen.
Piotr Anderszewski has established himself in the forefront of pianists in his generation. This recital continues his string of fascinating CDs. What sets it apart is how realistically the tone of an Anderszewski recital program has been captured -- in particular, I was carried back by his Bach to the mesmerizing playing I heard from him in concert. Anderszewski's ability to color the notes, ...
At Carnegie Hall
Warner Classics, 2003
Susan Graham is a True Recitalist
Though not usually one for true live recordings that include audience applause and response, SUSAN GRAHAM AT CARNEGIE HALL works well on every level. Not only is she in top form (as is her collaborator Malcolm Martineau at he piano) vocally and interpretatively, she demonstrates here an obvious rapport with her audience that is magical. The repertoire here could not be more varied - and ...
Richard Tucker & Robert Merrill Live from Carnegie Hall
Elektra / Wea, 1994
A hidden gem
For anyone who loves Opera this is a hidden gem of the highest quality. The two singers were on form and sang some of the most beautiful music of their lives in this concert. The Mozart Grand Aria (sort of a long aria that tells a ballad like story)sung by Tucker is so different and so interesting that it is worth buying for that alone. It is rarely if every done and you probably won't hear it ...
