New documentary “Broken Music” – a second look

Posted on November 8, 2017

The filming for our new documentary „Broken Music“ (WT), directed by Marita Stocker, about the Zakaria Paliashvili Central Music School continues in Tbilisi, Georgia. There was hardly a great Georgian musician who didn’t break into the world of music via the eye of the needle of the Paliashvili. But the glorious history of the school is faced with extinction: the building itself is in danger of falling apart and the current teachers are over 80 years old. Here are some impressions (to see more photos, click here):

Blomstedt/Beethoven CD Box set: The latest reviews

Posted on September 14, 2017

“Rarely have Beethoven’s symphonies sounded so stringent, so powerfully fluid, and so filled with tension. […] An exemplary cycle of recordings.”  Attila Csampai, Crescendo

 

“Blomstedt and the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig play Beethoven with a tonal beauty and with a resoluteness that makes these incomparable recordings unassailable as a refernece standard.” HR2 Kultur

 

“Exceptionally good”  theartsdesk.com

 

Herbert Blomstedt’s Beethoven testament is overall coherent, natural and immensely rhetoric. The music flows continuously with a vivid pulsation and is always admirably transparent. The rapid movements are fresh, with splendid rhythmic bounce, while the slow movements have warmth and are strikingly beautiful. The orchestral playing is of high quality, and the recorded sound is very good.”  Pizzicato
