5.0 out of 5 stars With out any doubt this entire set of four disks is an amazing technical and musical breakthrough and surpasses the TV program Jan. 1 2014
By rhodoguru - Published on Amazon.com

I would like to address first of all the technical limitations as I understand it of television. First of all you have to watch these programs on a sonically deficient system and second you have to allocate time to make the recording or watch it as available. I suggest that anyone considering this purchase should first review various online discussions of what is possible on the currently available recording systems. These discs surpass everything else available.

When these discs arrived several weeks ago one of the first things we did was to call up a friend who has an amazingly good sound and video system. We listened on our good equipment first and were blown away by the video and audio clarity. We spent hours enchanted by most aspects of these discs. We repeated this at our friends place but this time we got his view as a professional musician and he was similarly charmed. In particular the three of us felt then and in later discussion that this is Gerard Schwarz at his best. It is comparable to his last concert he performed in Seattle that I saw conducting the Seattle Symphony doing Bruckner's Symphony No. 4. A review of that concert is available on the Seattle Times website.

A particular treat for the three of us was to see some of the excellent musicians from the Seattle Symphony up close and clearly articulated in their great skills. It should be pointed out that the engineering was largely in the hands of some of the SSO's recording engineering staff. The commentaries by Schwarz and the musicians could have been longer and less repetitive and that is a criticism that I hope will be corrected in following discs currently in preparation. These discs are diminished by the repetitive ads on each of the discs. More comments by more of these excellent musicians would have been a plus.

Whether one approves of the choices of pieces performed or not they are all excellently presented.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why Would I Buy This Feb. 17 2014
By H. M. Moser - Published on Amazon.com
We are told that 19, or so, High Definition cameras captured the video for this recording. Yet, it appears that no Blu-ray transfer was made, or is available. How about the audio? No mention is made if the audio playback is in 5.1 or 7.1 surround. I see the word "Dolby" is shown, which means nothing.

When I think of all the great classical music now available on BLU-RAY with surround sound, I again ask: Why Would I Buy This?
