Birthday Concert for Pope Benedict XVI DVD
Filmed at the Vatican on 16 April 2007, this concert 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 G major Violin Concerto and Dvorak's '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.
