Bernstein delivered a powerful and now legendary live performance of Beethoven’s String Quartet Op. 135 – transcribed for String Orchestra and performed by the Vienna Philharmonic. For the first time ever this performance is now being released on DVD and Blu-ray.

Another definitive Bernstein performance debuting now on both mediums is the enigmatic maestro’s reading of Haydn’s Missa in tempore belli, filmed live in concert at Ottobeuren in 1984, using to maximum effect the deeply impressive setting of the monastery’s magnificent Baroque basilica.

Running Time Total: 93 minutes

DVD: DTS 5.1, PCM Stereo

Subtitles Haydn: English, German, French, Spanish, Korean, Chinese

***

“Beethoven's last quartet, expanded for full strings, sounds nicely urgent but unsuitably Romantic. Haydn's Mass is almost upstaged by its glorious setting, the Baroque basilica at Ottobeuren.”
