Bach Brandenburg on Blu-ray
Horn Blower | 01/09/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an excellent DVD from start to finish. Its all well played, filmed, and recorded. With the Blu-ray version you can read the time on the first horn's wrist watch, in Roman Numerals! There are a couple of places where the sound is not quite in sync with the video. This is very minor, not distracting, and was probably due to some editing or patch work that needed to be done. You have to be watching very closely to spot it.

The best players are used throughout and are well guided by Maestro Abbado. Be sure to watch the last movement of the #2 concerto played a second time as an encore. Piccolo trumpet Reinhold Friedrich nails it both times taking the last note up to a high F during the encore!

This is a very exciting DVD. You will be as glad to own it as I am."
Absolutely astounding!

"I have several Classical Music & Operas in my DVD collection. Enjoying all of them. I found the Brandenburg Concertos 1-6 BLU-RAY while browsing the internet and decided right away to purchase it assuming it would be superior to a DVD both in picture and sound. To my amazement, this Blu-Ray "knocked my socks off". I had recently purchased a largescreen TV and WOW, the PQ and the sound quality was superb. Claudio Abbado is one of my favourite conductors and watching the "super clear" expressions on his face and the faces of the musicians is really exciting to watch and hear. I would highly recommend this Blu-Ray DVD to anyone."
Excellent in all respects

"This performance of the Brandenburg concertos is STUNNING. Abbado's direction and every single performance in this production will leave you agog. I simply had never heard such a wonderful and flawless rendition anywhere, period. The video is simply gorgeous. The audio was also fabulous. As to the reviewer that commented that the audio is not high definition, that statement is absolutely incorrect, there is a 5.1 uncompressed PCM track which is absolutely perfect! Strongly recommended!"
Better than average audio, acceptable video

"As one reviewer says below this is not 24 bit audio. It's PCM 16 bit 5.1. However, I find that it is one of the best discs I have in my collection for audio quality. I have over 200 SACD's and around the same number of DVD-Audio discs. I have been playing these 2 formats since their inception. This Bach Blu-Ray stands out as one of the best amongst the discs in my collection. Oh, and I also have around 100 Blu-Ray concerts, most of them in DTS MA 5.1 and this Bach disc in PCM still stands out from most of them due to the care taken. The video is acceptable. There are many concert BD's that I have that have better video. The audio is what stands out on this one for me."
