5.0 out of 5 stars Bach Brandenburg on Blu-ray Jan. 9 2009
By Horn Blower - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely astounding! Jan. 7 2009
By Cdn Redbird - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent in all respects March 5 2009

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Listen to the Brandenburgs Through New Eyes Dec 19 2010
By Lane Hauck - Published on Amazon.com
Enjoying this masterpiece over a lifetime, I never expected the added joys this exceptional Blu-Ray edition delivers. In addition to showing off the amazing video and audio resolution of the Blu-Ray format, the presentation is unique. The players stand, which allows us to see full body language unconstrained by being seated. The players move together, creating a visual flow of its own. Some players emphasize their lines like a batter leaning into a fastball. Everyone has a chance to shine, and the camera misses nothing. The cameras follow the musical lines so perfectly that I hear (by seeing) voices in the ensemble that I may have missed before. This is a perfect blend of individuals and ensemble, and Abbado shows what conducting is all about with his economical style. Experiencing Bach in this way--with the exceptional visual element--adds a dimension to hearing these works that I really can't believe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful music, beautifully photographed June 14 2009
By Timothy Caywood - Published on Amazon.com

This disk immediately became my favorite to show off my JBL professional sound system and Pioneer 60" plasma. People remark that it appears they are looking at it through a window. The photography is right up close and crystal clear. All the variety of skin tones, textures and colors of the instruments are breathtaking. The Orchestra plays the tight and complacated music with great energy and they seem to be absolutely having a blast. You're not going to believe the beauty of the hall in Reggio Emilia, Italy. It would be a delight to watch even with the sound turned off. The sound recording is a full surround but you still get the crisp edge of the instruments as if you were right on stage. Buy this one. The better your equipment the better your experience. Think you Mr Bach.
