'A documentary providing a comprehensive history of European Jazz. It explores the origins of the US-influenced Jazz clubs after the Second World War, the first steps independent of American jazz and the various changes of direction that have repeatedly occurred in European jazz in the search for that 'own voice' that European jazz musicians have helped to form. Featuring the great masters of European jazz such as Chris Barber, Jan Garbarek, Juliette Greco, Stefano Bollani and Till Bronner, to name but a few, the film provides a wealth of styles in Jazz. For his third documentary on jazz, film-maker Julian Benedikt travelled to a wide variety of European countries in search of an all-embracing documentation of European jazz music. His story telling is neither too sophisticated nor does he simply reproduce the known cliches, rather the movie engages its audience with very personal impressions of European jazz, past and present. Accompanied by rarely seen archival footage featuring such influencing American jazz legends as Miles Davis, Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington, this unique document offers a collection of sparkling musical gems from both sides of the Atlantic'.

Gershwin, Pas de Deux [Ballet by Gene Kelly based on the Piano Concerto in F. Choreography by Claude Bessy]. Delibes, Soir de Fete [Ballet created and choreographed by Leo Staats based on Delibes' music arranged by Eric Vu-An]. (Ballet Nice Mediterranee and Orchestre Philharmonique de Nice/ David Garforth. 'This outstanding DVD release contains two magnificent, but rarely performed ballets: Gene Kellys Pas De Dieux, and Leo Staats Soir de Fete. Pas De Dieux tells the myth of Eros and Aphrodite who come to earth and land on the beach. The god and goddess seduce a lifeguard and his fiancée and enjoy the pleasures of their love. Just as the couples are dancing with their new suitor, Zeus comes to retrieve his wife and the deities ascend to Olympus, leaving the humans alone to their earthly loves. Pas De Dieux carefully follows George Gershwins Concerto in F. The ballet earned Kelly the Chevalier of the Legion d'honneur from the French Government. Leo Staats Soire de Fete was choreographed in 1925. The work is especially notable for its remarkable use of the male dancer, who is too frequently overshadowed by his female companion. This ballet includes the males moving freely alongside their female counterparts'. Recorded 12/2014. Includes and interview with Claude Bessy. Total playing time approx. 81')

'This Naxos China Travelogue tour of Shanxi starts with the ancient walled city of Pingyao, once a thriving commercial center. The former wealth of the province is witnessed by the Courtyard Houses of the Qu and Wang families, extensive compounds dating principally from the 18th century. Shuanglin Temple, part of the Pingyao world heritage site, is seen, with its collection of 2,000 painted statues from the Song and Yuan dynasties. There are views of Mount Wutai, the first of the Four Sacred Mountains for Chinese Buddhism, with some of its many monasteries and temples, and other Buddhist monuments at the Chongsan Monastery and Jinci Temple. The most remarkable of all is the Hanging Monastery at the foot of Mount Heng, one of the Five Sacred Mountains of Taoism, apparently hanging on a sheer cliff-face. The Yingxian Wooden Pagoda of Fogong Temple, dating from the 11th century, is the oldest and highest in China. Still earlier are the carvings of the Yungang Grottoes, some 51,000 statues of the Buddha in 252 caverns, dating originally from the 5th and 6th centuries. The tour ends with the sight of the remarkable Hukuo Waterfall, with its 50-metre descent in a gorge on the Yellow River. The journey is accompanied by traditional Chinese instruments and music'.

'This Naxos China Travelogues tour of Xinjiang [Sinkiang] starts in the old town of Kashgar, with its Uighur shops and alleys. Travelling to Tianchi [Heavenly Lake] in the Tianshan Mountain range, we see Kazakh yurts and flocks of sheep, and something of the varied flora and fauna of the area. In Kashgar again, the tomb of Abakh Khoja, a famous local ruler in the early Qing dynasty, makes a contrast with the busy city life of the capital, Urumqi. Some 30 kilometres take us to the geographical centre of the continent of Asia, while back at the heart of Kashgar itself is the 15th century yellow-tiled Id Kah Mosque. There are views of strange rock formations in the countryside and the colorful Lake Sayram, with the alpine scenery of Kanas Lake and the fertile vineyards of Grape Valley. The tour of this varied region, with its Uighur, Mongolian, Kazakh, Tatar, Uzbek, Han and other ethnic groups, ends with the snow-capped Tianshan Mountain, with its great glaciers. The tour is accompanied by traditional music and instruments'. (Running time approx. 59'49')

'This Naxos China Travelogue tour of Sichuan [Szechwan] takes us to a land of lakes and snow-capped mountains, with a fertile central plain.

Temples in the province include the elaborate Wuhou Memorial Temple, the temples on Qingcheng Mountain and the legendary Fulong Temple. Most impressive of all, however, must be the natural scenery the rivers, lakes and waterfalls, and the mountains that protected the province from invasion for so many centuries.

'A region of mountains and lakes, the province of Yunnan lies to the south of Sichuan. This Naxos China Travelogue tour starts with the Old Town of Lijiang, with its narrow cobbled streets and closely packed traditional buildings. Later the tour moves to Shuhe, otherwise known as Longquan Village, which is a few kilometers north of Lijiang but boasts comparable traditional buildings as a place where the minority Naxi People have long lived. Mountains in Yunnan include Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, its name that of a legendary defender of the region, transformed with his brother into thirteen peaks. The tour visits the historic capital of Yunnan, Kunming, now home to some five million inhabitants. Scenes of Yunnan are matched with traditional music.'.(Running time approx. 61'08')

'In the peace treaty of 1919 the Tyrol was divided into three regions, Southern Tyrol being ceded to Italy. The Eastern Tyrol, Austrian territory, is bounded to the south by the Lienz Dolomites, with the town of Lienz the regional capital. The region is popular with summer visitors, its climate relatively mild, in spite of its height above sea level. There is also a glimpse of the Earth Pyramids at Ritten (Renon) in the Italian Southern Tyrol. Music for the tour is by Franz Schubert, the son of a schoolmaster who had settled in Vienna. Although his life was chiefly spent in Vienna, he was, nevertheless, able to enjoy the Austrian countryside, during country holidays spent with friends. The beauty of the landscape is reflected in his music and, in particular, in his songs. The tour of the Lienz Dolomites is accompanied by music by Schubert for piano trio, written towards the end of his short life.'.(Running time approx. 58'50')

'Starting from the great Cathedral of Chartres, our tour takes us to Brittany and Normandy in Northern France, and to Franche Comté and Burgundy. Many of the scenes chosen match closely the music of Fauré and in particular that of his Requiem, with a wide range of corresponding images, from the calvaries of Brittany to the startling architecture of Le Corbusier in his church of Notre Dame du Haut at Ronchamp, and from The Last Judgement by Roger van der Weyden in Beaune to the tapestries of Jean Lurçat at Angers. The music chosen for this tour of France is by Gabriel Fauré. It includes his Requiem, the evocative Pavane, his Sicilienne, probably originally intended as part of incidental music for Moliere's Le bourgeois gentilhomme, and the Berceuse'.

''1000 Masterpieces from the Great Museums of the World' is one of the most successful TV series about art. The original, with improved image quality, takes us on a fascinating journey through the history of art. Comprehensively illustrated and compellingly presented – the well-known authors of ten short art surveys provide a full introduction to the masterpieces of painting. Great artists of various epochs were fascinated by dramas, myths and legends. Masters such as Millais, van Dyck, Massys or von Stuck developed their own unique interpretations of themes like passion, courage, tragedy or fate – and these have retained their magical allure right down to the present day. John Everett Millais: Ophelia [1851/52], Johann Heinrich Füssli: Titania and Bottom [1790], Niklaus Manuel Deutsch: Pyramus and Thisbe [1520], Franz von Stuck: Salome [1906], Jan Massys: Flora [1559], Fernand Khnopff: The Caresses, [1896], Paul Delvaux: Pygmalion [1939], Lucas Cranach the Elder: Venus and Cupid [1509], Mikhail Vrubel: Six-Winged Seraph [1904], Anthonis van Dyck: Samson and Delilah [1630]' (Reiner E.
