CD Reviews

Great soundtrack from a beautiful film
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Let me say first that I have never considered myself an opera fan. I watched the movie to see Patrick Bauchau (he's great in it - the film comes to life when he's on screen). I ended up loving both the film and the music. I've had this soundtrack for three or four years now and listen to it often. I still wouldn't claim to be a big opera fan, but this soundtrack at the very least has me leaning in that direction more than I had been in the past. Previously, the CD of this soundtrack has been somewhat hard to find. I'm glad to see it listed on Amazon now. I just wish they'd also release the film to DVD in the U.S."
Still a huge favorite of mine after two decades

"This CD NEVER gets old. In fact, I bought it when CD players were "newfangled." We didn't have one, so I ended up buying a Sony portable JUST so I could play this CD.

The Music Teacher is the soundtrack from the film of the same name, a simple European fable about a talented opera coach, bringing on the next generation of singers before his own inevitable demise. It's a lovely film, if a bit soppy sentimental. However, the choice of music is absolutely exquisite. From "Von der Jugend" --a tenor singing this section of Mahler's Lied von der Erde, to some lieder, sections of symphonies and standard opera arias, this CD delivers the best classical music has to offer us. If you like sampler CD's with vocal classical music, you won't be disappointed. Lovely."
