Birthday Concert for Pope Benedict XVI, DVD

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.
