"Average production quality. Less than average performance. Poor conductor. Decent ambiance from the rear speakers and bass is deep from the LFE but I've heard better performances.An upcoming second release from Christian Thielemann and the Orchestra of the Deutsche Opera is the one you will want. Skip this release and wait for the next DVD Audio of Orff's Carmina Burana., but never overwhelming. Maybe the upcomins second release of this work could provide a choice of two versions - one "best seat" version and one where the listener is "surrounded" by the large cast of performers."
Jarring transitions mar beautiful music!

"The sound and performance are fantastic.
BUT....the DVD authoring experts[?] destroy the effort with transitions between cuts that jolt the nervous system. There is no delay for the sound to decay. The next cut leaps out before the prior one has finished. At one point the soprano's final note is actually cut in half as the next chorus begins. Extremely upsetting."
