Mark Sealey
MusicWeb International, May 2010

A Musical Journey – Italy is a sumptuously-shot and expertly-edited collection of short sequences of some of the most beautiful and visually stimulating locations in those three cities to the (essentially unconnected) music of Tchaikovsky—although his love of Italy and time spent there are evident links…The colour is rich and realistic. The subjects illustrating that splendour have been expertly chosen…Florence at night is an interesting idea—and well done…the earthiness of Naples is well and candidly conveyed.

The sheet that comes with the DVD deals with each of the seven chapters by outlining a little of the history and context of the place featured (Florence gets four chapters); then a much shorter description of the music chosen to accompany the scenes.
