The program and the orchestra are terrific with some new pieces that were never performed at a New Year's Concert. There is the "Morning, Noon, and Night in Vienna Overture" which I love. And there are others also to be enjoyed.
In the "An der schonen blauen Donau", the cammeramen take us on a tour of some acoustics, places in Vienna, sunsets/rises in fast-foward, and of the opera house/concert hall that the concert is being performed in.
The ballet in the "Ritter Pasman: Csardas" is terrific and extremly well done.
This DVD is to be enjoyed for many generations to come, and probably to become the most popular and favorite among millions of people. Please buy it, and you'll not regret it...ever...
The video/audio quaity is outstandng. The picture has 16:9 letterbox format and the sound format has both 5.1 DD and lineat PCM stereo, which I prefer for classical music.
So... I am sure this DVD can be an all time favorite for anyone who loves music and "peace".
Thank you, Ms. Roberta Flack, for giving the WORLD romance, mystery, and love. This DVD proves that she is still the queen of her craft!!!
Well, you can find reasons to buy this one: first of all, the music - although these two works deserves better interpretations, here we can listen some pleasant moments. Isn't a first class perfomance (like in Messiah's DVD with Cleobury, or The Creation's DVD with Schreier), but an accetable one. Other reasons are a good work from a young conductor, the quality of soloists, good sound and images (a beautiful church in Paris), and the director's work.
So, if we don't have a definitive version of this couple, let's enjoy this one (two curiousities: mistakes at subtitles informing the dates of the death of both composers, and there is interventions of woman's choir at some parts of Stabat).
My only real complaint is the less than perfect sound and picture quality. If you've ever seen Cafe' Benedetto, you know what I mean. It is better than that video, but not by much. The performances are sincere and very well played, but the so so sound quality is hard to overcome. Overall, the DVD is well worth the money and is a great buy for jazz guitar fans.
As a musician - I was disappointed with the camera work. Too many close ups of faces during key guitar solos. Close ups of the right hand picking, but never a close up of the left hand soloing. The camera person was obviously not a guitar player and didn't seem to know when a solo started or ended, or sometimes who was even playing it. Nevertheless, Chet's hilarious, but very credible distorted whammy bar rock solo, and his inability to pull off a riff in The Claw, were just two priceless moments of humor and humanity from these two flawless masters of the guitar.

Now if we can get the movie Coal Miner's Daughter on DVD, that would be music to my ears!!!
I like when concert DVDs offer subtitles to follow the words, but this DVD does not offer them. But this is definitely a worthwhile purchase.
Do not,I repeat,do not waste your money. (I hope that Gerry,and Dewey have not watched this turkey)
