A new edition of a very popular series of budget DVD, with the entire EuroArts & Idéale Audience Catalogue included in the slipcase.

The 236-pages catalogue brings together two prestigious audio-visual production companies: EuroArts and Idéale Audience, including all new releases of 2014 and all the available DVDs and Blu-ray Discs in our catalogue.

In this live recording from Japan from 2000, the Berliner Philharmoniker perform under the direction of Mariss Jansons, rekindling their long-standing relationship that began in 1976.

Tokyo’s Suntory Hall is alive to a programme of particular musical energy − sometimes overt and joyous, sometimes suppressed and intense. Jansons’ fidelity to music composed during the Soviet era remains heartfelt: Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No.1, featuring soloist Hilary Hahn, is rendered with poise, elegance and demoniac vigour. This piece is framed by two sprightly works: Weber’s charming, zesty Overture to Oberon and Dvorák’s Eighth Symphony, executed with Bohemian-esque lyricism and verve.

Hilary Hahn is a two-time Grammy Award-winning soloist. She is celebrated for her probing interpretations, technical assurance and compelling stage presence. Her extensive international performances and recording activities have made Hahn one of the most important artists of our time.
