Description by Image Entertainment:
Dreampaths of Music was created by Italian maestro Giuseppe Sinopoli--principle conductor of Dresden Staatskapelle, one of Europe's oldest orchestras--to mark the symphony's 450th anniversary, and features performances of Schumann's "Symphony No. 3," the prelude to Wagner's "Parsifal" and Beethoven's "Symphony No. 7." For Sinopoli, these pieces formed a rite of passage, a journey in music to inspire thoughts on the meaning of existence. Pat and Barry Gavin add striking electronic graphics to this extraordinary cultural excursion, which is linked by images of rivers and water from the Rhine Valley to the Nile.
