Music Teacher International, October 2008

With this production we have the best of both worlds; a feast for the eyes and for the ears. Provence with its ancient Roman remains and hills and lush valleys steeped in time, offer a veritablevisual cornucopia. Journey through castles, down rivers, up steep rocky hillsides and thirteenth century towers, to the old port of Marseilles. Filmed in glorious natural colour, delight in the fascinatingly varied landscape and wildlife of the Camargue region while listening to Debussy, Berlioz, Saint-Saëns, Fauré, Ravel and Massenet. Cross the Pont du Gard as you savour the thrilling sounds of Symphonie Fantastique, Debussy’s Le petit berger in the village of Maussane, and lap up the Mediterranean seascape to the accompaniment of Après un rêve. An accompanying booklet describes the various regions in 15 Chapters, linking each to the appropriate music. The great French composers find an apt home among these glorious scenes. There are many other pictorial productions in this Naxos DVD series, including musical tours of Paris, Moscow, Seville & Granada, Tuscany and Sicily.
