Lynn René Bayley
Fanfare, January 2013

Brief though it is, this video documents a strange and, to some extent, golden era.

Highly recommended for its first-hand accounts of the people who lived through this era. © 2012 Fanfare Read complete review

Anne Shelley
Music Media Monthly, October 2012

This documentary presents a western-bias perspective on the German Democratic Republic (GDR)’s involvement in Berlin’s music scene from 1945 until the destruction of the Berlin Wall in 1990. This film shows some fabulous footage of the rebuilding of Berlin, including astounding camera sweeps of a 1948 concert held in Berlin’s Gendarmenmarkt…The film wraps up with poignant clips of the “Prisoners’ Chorus” from a 1989 production of Fidelio…A very interesting, emotional film with incredible archival footage—highly recommended. © 2012 Music Media Monthly Read complete review
