color, ca. 47 min. - The greatest Volksmusik hits of this award winning group. The romantic heartwarming songs performed in their beautiful homeland are sure to please. Mit viel, viel Herz und jeder Menge Kreativitaet ist es Regisseur Wolfgang Moik gelungen, all das zu vermitteln, was wir an den Romantikern der Volksmusik zu schaetzen wissen, naemlich die sympathisch-herzliche, ehrliche Art der Interpretation, gepaart mit der traumhaften Landschaft ihrer Heimat. Das Nockalm Quintett praesentiert: "Weine nicht um ihn", "Schuld sind Deine himmelblauen Augen", "Drei Finger auf's Herz", "Aus Traenen wird ein Schmetterling", "Spiel nie mit dem Feuer", "Schwarzer Sand von Santa Cruz"' "Nur a Tanz und dann a Busserl", "Der Sommerwind will keine Traenen seh'n".

ca 90 min. - A breathtaking musical spectacle of pomp, pageantry, energy and spirit featuring over 2,000 military and civilian performers from eight countries.

Performers from Denmark, England, France, Germany ("The Flying Grandpas" and "Luftwaffenmusikkops 4"), the Netherlands, Scotland, U.S.A. and Canada.
Why is it called "Tattoo"? In 17th Century Ducht villages, drummers summoned British soldiers away from late-night gatherings and back to their quarters wth a drumbeat signalling innkeepers to "doe den tap toe" or "turn off the taps". Shortened over time to "tap toe" and finally to "tattoo", the phrase now heralds an extraordinary entertainment highlighted by marching bands and military competitions.

Othello, VW 1405
ca. 121 min. - The Berlin Komische Opera conducted by Kurt Masur. Sung in the German version. Verdi's masterpiece equals the level of Shakespeare and is one of the finest tragedies ever written. The story of the opera follows Shakespeare's tragic play closely, maintaining the dramatic qualities of the original, while taking the play's 3500 lines and condensing them to under 800 for the opera. The role of Othello, extremely heavy and difficult for the tenor, and the equally difficult role of Iago, add an exciting virtuouso element to the dramatic tension. Verdi's operatic masterpiece equals the level of one of the finest tragedies ever written.

A Requiem for Mozart  
Mozart: Requiem in D MinorWN 912
ca. 60 min. - This last work in Mozart's short but incredibly prolific career, is surrounded by mystery and legend. In July 1791, Mozart received a commission to compose a requiem from an anonymous patron. Haunted by the mysterious appearance of this stranger, Mozart set about composing this requiem, which the ailing composer believed was for himself. Whether or not the anonymous commissioner, now known to be Count Franz von Walsegg zu Stuppach, intended to pass the work off as his own still remains a mystery. Mozart did not finish the work before his death in December of that year. It was completed by his pupil, Syssmayr. To this day it remains a truly moving mass for the dead, frequently performed around the wold. This performance, conducted by the widely acclaimed Sir Colin Davis, is given by the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and Chorus. In Hi-fi stereo.
