Zubin Mehta, at the age of 26, was the youngest ever conductor to head a major American orchestra. Truly ingenious, he led them to international acclaim.

This DVD was recorded at the height of this collaboration, and beautifully portrays an emerging star.

In his youth, Mehta was already so much more than a conductor. His profound connection with the orchestra leads to a unity of sound which is rare in today's jet-set reality.

He understands how to stretch the orchestra technically because he knows it inside out.

In turn, the orchestra inspires Mehta. In their joyful collaboration, hidden musical meanings emerge.

Mehta shows his versatility in his interpretations of great works from the 18th, 19th and 20th century.

Read Presto's complete review of this disc here.

Hundreds of millions watched the historic concert on television. Now exclusively on DVD: the New York Philharmonic concert in Pyongyang.

Music became diplomacy when this courageous musical project united Americans and North Koreans.

The musicians went from strength to strength in a beautiful programme which illustrated the excellence of the orchestra.

Lorin Maazel once more proved his reputation as one of the best contemporary conductors.

Includes previously unreleased documentary with 53 min of exclusive material.

"Astounding was the fact that the orchestra played the North Korean national anthem and the Star Spangled Banner on a stage flanked by flags of both nations … a rare moment of harmony, proving the power of music that bridges the divides." The Korea Times (South Korea)

"For at least 90 minutes in a theatre in Pyongyang it was possible … to believe that 55 years of cold-war hostility were coming to an end." James Miles, The Economist

“Both fascinating and enjoyable, this comes warmly recommended.” Presto Classical, 6th October 2008

Eva Urbanová (soprano), Katerina Kachlíková (mezzo-soprano), Štefan Margita (tenor) & Peter Mikuláš (bass)

The Prague Symphony Orchestra & Chorus, Libor Pešek

The works of the quintessentially Czech composer Antonín Dvorák are, above all, enjoyable and perennial favourites of the Romantic repertoire. This six-part series of concerts is performed by the Prague Symphony Orchestra and Chorus and the Prague Philharmonic Choir, with the leading Czech conductor on the podium: Petr Altrichter, Jirí Belohlávek and Libor Pešek. Guest soloists include soprano Lucia Popp, alto Eva Randová, tenor Josef Protschka, bass Peter Mikulas, pianist Igor Ardasev, violinist Ivan Zenaty and cellist Mischa Maisky, who plays one of Dvorák’s finest works, the Cello Concerto. VOLUME V includes the world’s famous Stabat Mater. The first English performance, in London’s Royal Albert Hall in 1883 was such a sensational success that Dvorák was asked to conduct his Stabat Mater himself the following year. The last hurdle to a world career had been cleared.
