…those who like visuals with some lighter classical music will enjoy this offering. The Piazzolla material is fairly substantial in its way, but the major work here is the world première of Schifrin’s second guitar concerto, which he calls Concierto de la Amistad. The piece was written for Romero, who performs it with gusto, and it is a nicely made work that gives Romero plenty of opportunities to show off his virtuosity and does not require much depth of perception or involvement on the part of the audience. …this DVD mixes appealing if not terribly significant music with some pleasant visuals (especially in the tangos, in which Tango Buenos Aires does a fine job) and an overall feeling of relaxation and enjoyment. © 2017 Read complete review

There is so much toe-tapping enthusiastically performed music in this DVD of Gustavo Dudamel conducting the Los Angeles Philharmonic live at the Hollywood Bowl on August 2, 2016. From the opening dramatic distance shot of the stage, orchestra and audience, to the final closing stage close-ups of rhythmic boisterous playing and swirling tango dancing, every visual complements the composers, conductor, musicians, soloists and dancers.

Dudamel conducts with passion and precision. Sound quality is superb. Three bonus interviews are included. Listen, watch, dance and enjoy! © 2017 The WholeNote Read complete review
