Almost perfect - but I may return it

"When I saw that Mikhail Pletnev recorded the Tchaikovsky Concerto #2 in DVD version, there were no second thoughts. I immediately ordered it and couldn't wait for it to arrive. Last night, I put it on and had a major disappointment. Although the sound is nearly perfect and the photography fantastic, in the Concerto the syncing was off! The sound of a crashing chord would be followed a second later by Pletnev's hand coming down on the chord.
Perhaps this might not bother other people but I found myself looking away and just listening to his gorgeous playing. On the other hand, I bought a DVD to watch and not a CD to listen. The same problem may have been there in the symphonic works but it wasn't as noticeable as when watching a pianist up close. What a shame - this ruined an otherwise fantastic DVD for me."
