String Quartet/ Missa Tempore Belli

"Since Leonard Bernstein is the number one conductor today, the only one who can let the Vienna Philharmonic play the way they would love to sound all the time, he and the orchestra wanted to play a difficult Beethoven Quartet in a monster setting. They succeeded, and it was an exciting work, unlike anything one ever hears." Schwabische Zeitung

Bernstein delivered a powerful and now legendary live performance of Beethoven's String Quartet Op. 135 - transcribed for String Orchestra and performed by the Vienna Philharmonic. For the first time ever this performance is now being released on DVD and Blu-ray.

Another definitive Bernstein performance debuting now on both mediums is the enigmatic maestro's reading of Haydn's Missa in tempore belli, filmed live in concert at Ottobeuren in 1984, using to maximum effect the deeply impressive setting of the monastery's magnificent Baroque basilica.
