Notes & Reviews:

Filmed at the Vatican on 16 April 2007, this DVD reproduces the concert that formed the centrepiece of Pope Benedict XVI’s 80th-birthday celebrations. Also included are the welcoming speeches and the Pope’s words of thanks in German and Italian. The concert programme, in part selected by the music-loving Pontiff himself, brings together two of classical music’s brightest young stars for their first joint appearance – American violinist Hilary Hahn and Venezuelan firebrand conductor Gustavo Dudamel. Mozart’s sparkling G major Violin Concerto and Dvorák’s stirring "New World" Symphony are two of classical music’s best-loved masterpieces, neither of which had been recorded before by these artists. Their performances here received high critical acclaim in the press.
