Notes & Reviews:

When this new Decca DVD release of "1984" came out in Italy, it was the best-selling new music DVD on the national charts in the country the week ending May 12, 2008, entering the Top 10 list at No. 6, ahead of releases by Pink Floyd, Queen and Jethro Tull. This is a remarkable and almost certainly unprecedented sale performance for a contemporary opera recording. Maestro Maazel's first opera is completing a run of seven performances at La Scala, Milan, where it has been warmly embraced by critics and public alike. This DVD release has now been made available in the U.S. market as a deluxe two-disc set with an exclusive 30-minute introduction to the opera by the composer.
