1.0 out of 5 stars Is this a joke?, March 19 2014
I found this movie on youtube for free, it is so old! Of course B&W... But it is mute! Blu Ray? Is this a joke? Give me your money instead. The actors are all of them like Sarah Bernard... If you know what I mean.

A useless cover and difficult to install. I would not recommend this purchase to anybody. It is expensive for what it is.

Just this opera, don't expect more. Well sung, well directed but not the best ever.
There are one other version with the opera "the world" also, same conductor.

1.0 out of 5 stars Je pensais..., March 10 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Je pensais qu'il s'agissait d'un livre complet d'exercises pour 17$. Non, il s'agit seulement de réponses d'un livre qui coûte autour de 37$, une déception. Seulement les réponses pour 17$ est trop cher.

5.0 out of 5 stars I had this on vinyl, March 7 2014
This review is from: Der Ring Des Nibelungen (Audio CD)
I finally decided to have the CD copy. It is awesome!!!!! I have three other versions, Furtwangler, Barenboim ans a guy I don't remember... But Furtwangler and the other guy are old version not so well re-masterized. Barenboim is ok but the singers.... Are more or less. I bought some highlights by von Karajan, the singers are not good. I love all the Solti's singers, he made the best choice!

I love Solti

3.0 out of 5 stars Weird, Feb. 27 2014
The stage is avant-garde... They seem like robots, Mime is poor, Siegfried is an excellent singer but... old.
In general, the singers are average, the orchestra, of course is perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars The very best version I have ever heard, Feb. 27 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The stage is not awesome, but the singers are. Often the role of Mime is neglected, but his voice goes to high pitch to deep. This Mime is perfect, I have four versions, the Robert Lepage, the newest and the worst on Blu Ray, Daniel Barenboim, with an old Siegfried Jerusalem and an acceptable Mime, the Zubin Mehta Blu Ray version, with a bad Mime and a bad Siegfried. Siegfried is a difficult opera, but some people don't know that apparently.

I recommend this version.

In Die Walkirie, Sigliende is Jessye Norman, one of the very best Wagner singers I have ever heard. James Levine is good... Not perfect, but still.

3.0 out of 5 stars I like too much Alban Berg, Jan. 21 2014
This review is from: Alban Berg Collection (Audio CD)
Teresa Stratas is good for Traviata, not for Lulu. Pierre Boulez tried to conduct so many things... Wagner, Stravinsky, Schönberg, Berg. I don't like his style. IMHO, Pierre Boulez is not a great conductor... There are many better versions in separate CDs... Christina Schäffer or Petibon are excellent Lulus. Their voices can reach the semitonal music written by Alban Berg. Teresa Stratass is not the good singer for it. Martin

3.0 out of 5 stars She is good singer, Jan. 21 2014
This review is from: Lulu (Audio CD)
For Traviata. She is not Lulu. We need another kind of singer for Lulu. She can't reach the required notes. It is a difficult opera indeed. Better versions are Christina Schaffer and Petibon, Pierre Boulez is not better. I have this version and i shurely won't recommend it to people I care for. Martin

Of course it is a reference book... It is hard to read it as a novel, it is not one. LOL
