Product Description

The PlacesThe musical tour starts in Zürich and moves to the hill-top village of Regensberg. The farmland of Emmental is seen, with Lake Thun and the waterfalls of Lauterbrunnen. Still more impressive is the great Matterhorn and a tribute to mountaineers who have lost their lives there. Zermatt, a popular ski resort as well as a base for climbers, is also seen in the milder days of summer. The MusicMusic for the tour is taken from the first two of Mozart's Violin Concertos, written in Salzburg in 1773 and in 1775 respectively. Mozart composed his five Violin Concertos either for his own use or for the Italian violinist Antonio Brunetti, who was employed, with Mozart, in the musical establishment of the Prince-Archbishop in Salzburg.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not great. Could afford to be more slick and professional. Beautiful Music July 11 2010

I've bought one of these Naxos Musical Journeys before, so I knew what I was in for. The music is brilliant, beautiful. The accompanying film is just ok. You get to see some lovely scenery, but the images are not sharp. On my Plasma TV, they came out pixellated. On top of that, some of the images shown are a waste (e.g. focusing on Swans, sunsets, unflattering cityscapes), it should focus on the scenery and unique/special cityscapes. SO, I would reccommend you get this, or any other Naxos musical journey, if you're a huge fan of the music and/or the location. If you have just a mild interest, I wouldn't particularly reccommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars relaxing July 12 2013
By J. Zartman - Published on Amazon.com
An Artistic video of Switzerland set to Mozart. Some of the shots are a little blurry, and some are not so beautiful, but on the whole it makes a lovely and relaxing hour. I look forward to watching more Naxos Musical Journeys.
3.0 out of 5 stars Relaxing Jan. 30 2014

Relaxing but def not informative. I needed an information video. I did enjoy the pics but turned it off after awhile.
5.0 out of 5 stars Very soothing on the mind and soul March 29 2013
By Serenitysdad - Published on Amazon.com
I totally enjoy watching, and listening, to Dan Gibson's Solitude tapes and videos. While much of Dan's material centers on Nature and music, the Naxos series of movies are just as relaxing and visually stunning. Great if you have had a stressful day, just want to have some quiet, peaceful time, or just want to light up the fire, have a warm java or hot chocolate with a loved one and relax....I look forward to watching others in the Naxos Scenic series...
