About

This DVD Box presents two of the concert highlights of the Salzburg Festival, conducted by Nikolaus Harnoncourt, with outstanding soloists. 

DVD1: Nikolaus Harnoncourt conducts Mozart

For the Ouverture Spirituelle Grammy Award winner Nikolaus Harnoncourt chose two seldom heard works by Mozart, performed in the unique Salzburg Cathedral, a jewel of Baroque architecture. This is the first recording of the concert series “Ouverture Spirituelle” from the Salzburger Festspiele focusing on religious themes and musical works

“Harnoncourt revealed the historic richness of Mozart’s Litanei … in the finest colours and dynamic shading…” - Kleine Zeitung

“Ovenden’s attractive, bright tenor … his rhythm, diction and easy flexibility of voice are exemplary…” - The Sunday Times

DVD2: Joseph Haydn: The Seasons / Die Jahreszeiten

The Seasons is a musical manifesto addressed to nature and the countryfolk, breaking ground with its hitherto unexplored subject-matter as it heralds the dawning Romantic era in music. Nikolaus Harnoncourt brings out the beautiful simplicity of the work. Including the documentary “Nikolaus Harnoncourt rehearsing Joseph Haydn’s The Seasons.

Nikolaus Harnoncourt tunes his “Wiener” to peak performance and shows as few others can how “to coax the tenderest expressive pianissimo shiver from the violins and violas into the almost inaudible”, enthused the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.

“A stroke of luck, when the grandezza of this music is brought home to one like this, without airs and graces!” - Salzburger Nachrichten

“Jubilation!” - Kronen Zeitung
