Title: Live at Herod Atticus - DVD
At last,the DVD of the 1984 returning home to Athens concert by
Greeces best known international artiste. What a setting the theatre just below the Acroplolis,I was there not long ago and it's
just a perfect setting for such an historic homecoming,as she had not played in her home country for twenty years.She wears for the first part of the concert a long white flowing dress that looks very traditionally Greek in style which just adds to the occasion. The concert is a
really wonderful evening, Nana singing many of her best known songs
with many also by Greeces best known composers. Her band is really
excellent as well with many close ups on any solo playing.The beautiful arrangement of Amazing Grace,the clarity of voice on Ave Maria, White Rose Of Athens in three different languages seems even more powerful in such a setting,alsa a medley that includes Zorbas Dance. For any who enjoy Nana this is a wonderful
DVD to enjoy again and again. The bonus items recorded in 2002
for German television see her singing in many Greek locations
including Athens of course,but also Corfu etc.
One thing to watch,this is not filmed in wide sceen but in standard format.so beware as if you don't change it everyone looks a bit on the short and stubby size. Sound is excellent throughout.I bought the double CD of this concert last year in Greece,but to visually see it in such a setting on one very special night is just not to be missed as it,s said that Nana's current tour is her last before she retires from touring,shame,
as live she is one of the truly great live artistes in the world.
Athens and Nana Mouskouri the perfect concert and the right setting,five stars all the way.
