There's little doubt that Bryan Adams devotees will delight in this 15-song, 55-minute offering from the raw-voiced singer-songwriter. More surprising is the likelihood that those with little interest in his work will also find much to admire here--surprising insofar as Adams, who despite a lengthy career and numerous hits is essentially a journeyman artist, adapts easily and impressively to the Unplugged format. The addition of some unusual instruments (mandolin, Irish pipes and whistles) and a string section conducted by Michael Kamen and composed of young players from Juilliard adds texture and interest to songs like "18 Til I Die" (with a fiery solo by one of the violinists) and "When You Love Someone." There are occasional missteps, and Adams's songs, while catchy, are hardly the world's most original. But by and large the singer, his band, and the supporting cast make this a very enjoyable ride. --Sam Graham

Leonard Bernstein - Young People's Concerts / New York Philharmonic
Manufacturer: Kultur Video
Broadcast to millions in America and abroad, the immensely popular series was the winner of multiple Emmy, Peabody and Edison awards. Now this national treasure is available for the first time on DVD in a Special Collector's Edition 9-disc set that contains 25 programs from the Young People's Concerts Series. Leonard Bernstein earned glory as a composer, conductor, and pianist (classical and jazz), but nothing gave him more pleasure than the joy of teaching. He presented the unique blend of spoken words and music known as the "Young People's Concerts" throughout his tenure as music director of the New York Philharmonic and for several years after. His enjoyment, and his audience's, can be seen vividly captured by the video cameras. He is an intensely interactive teacher, getting his audience to sing, springing a quiz full of trick questions, and singing a Beatles song to demonstrate a point. Bernstein is completely at ease talking to his audience. He can take the most abstruse subject - the meaning and function of intervals, tonality and atonality, the links between Gustav Mahler's troubled life and his music - and present them to a young audience with clarity, without condescension, and with a clear sense of the material's value. His subject-matter is enormously varied. For Igor Stravinsky's 80th birthday, he simply tells his audience the story of Petrouchka while conducting a dazzling performance of the colorful ballet. For a program on "Folk Music in the Concer...
