Dave Saemann
Fanfare, January 2012

One thing that this documentary makes clear is the affection between Gergiev and his players. With what essentially is a pick-up orchestra, Gergiev hones an ensemble of beauty and refinement, with a powerful sonority. I concur with the audience in Abu Dhabi; this concert is a resounding success.

The sound engineering in stereo is very good, with just a hint of congestion in climaxes. I was unable to try out the surround-sound option. The director does a fine job, alternating not overbearing views of Gergiev with sensitively judged close-ups of the orchestra’s players. I enjoyed just listening to the DVD’s sound while lying down as much as I did viewing its picture. Gergiev really presents a seminar on the conductor’s art on this DVD. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to see how a major artist achieves his results. © 2012 Fanfare Read complete review on Fanfare

Orchestral Concert - PROKOFIEV, S. / TCHAIKOVSKY, P.I. / ROSSINI, G. (Gergiev at the Abu Dhabi Festival) (World Orchestra for Peace) (NTSC) 707008
MAHLER, G.: Symphonies Nos. 4 and 5 (Tilling, World Orchestra for Peace, Gergiev) (NTSC) 702608

The World Orchestra for Peace…are heard at their best in these stunning BBC performances of the two Mahler symphonies. …the performances are magnificent, particularly Symphony No. 5 in which brass playing is spectacular. Exciting concerts indeed! Read complete review
