Excellent performance
Rider | Middleburg, VA | 07/26/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"While I was disappointed that they didn't perform the entire Water Music, the movements that are performed are played exceptionally well: excellent musicians and period-style performance, exceptional DTS surround sound, and very visually engaging (they took great pains to re-create every aspect of the original performance of the Water Music, including full period dress and a fully-outfitted 18th century style boat that they play on while floating down the river). Highly recommended. (I would have given this 5 stars if they played the entire Water Music, but I think they were limited on time due to this originally being a BBC broadcast program)."
