Some concerts are important simply as occasions: The Joint Concert--Tel Aviv was a celebration of reconciliation, a performance shared by the Berlin Philharmonic and the Israel Philharmonic that would have been inconceivable a few years earlier. Zubin Mehta takes a massive band consisting of both orchestras through performances of Ben Haim's fascinating Psalm, Ravel's La Valse and Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. The Ravel is particularly impressive--a work that can often slip into feyness or the too overtly sinister--here has a depth of complexity to its sound that saves it from either, and the sheer volume of the harps in a couple of passages gives the performance an interesting and individual strangeness. The Beethoven is monumental in its scale--rarely has the transition between the "Scherzo" and the "Finale" sounded so like Forster's goblins walking across the universe. Young and promising soloists--Viviane Hagner (violin) and Sharon Kam (clarinet)--play the Saint-Saens Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso with the Israel Philharmonic and the Weber Concertino with the Berlin Philharmonic; we grow so rapidly used to the sound of the orchestras playing together that their individual sounds strike us as almost delicate.On the DVD: The DVD has menus in English, French, German and Spanish and is presented in 4:3 screen ratio with PCM stereo sound, relegating a description of the importance of the event to the booklet. --Roz Kaveney

...and the hotels and four days later we were on the plane.
We aren?t pious and didn?t intend to go on a pilgrimage and tick off all the holy sites Israel has to offer, we decided to stay in Tel Aviv (where the international airport is) for two days to shake off winterly Germany and then to go on to Jerusalem for six days. Tel Aviv gave us what we had been looking for and more than was necessary to make us...

Review of Tel-Aviv (Israel)
Advantages: Cheaper international calls, fixed rate 1p per min internet access Disadvantages: None
...OneTel is a great company that gives you very good rates on national and international calls made from the UK and also the option of an Internet connection that costs no more then one penny per minute at ALL times.

Review of OneTel
Advantages: Great price, works well on darker coloured varnishes, doesn't dry the nail, funnel neck Disadvantages: Smell is a bit yack!
...a flip top and the neck is funnelled into a small hole which only releases a small amount each time, meaning the 400ml bottle will last an age! This product really is worth investing in, and for the bargain price of £1 you really cannot go wrong.
There are two versions of the Classics nail varnish remover, the classic remover and the acetone free.
There are two different sized bottles that I...
