This is the most exciting Rach 3 on dvd that I have seen/heard. Bonfman is truly amazing in this. However, the sound is not so great, as one might expect from a huge outdoor venue. In fact, I get no sound at all from my center channel with dts or dolby surround (not a problem with other discs).However there's no problem hearing a baby crying with gusto towards the end of the first movement. I would love to hear this combination in a real concert hall absent reluctant infant concertgoers. Even with the shortcomings, this is worth having just to watch and hear Bronfman.
The Rite of Spring was disappointing, probably due to the acoustics. It was just flat-sounding, not much instrumental separation or oomph. For a hair-raising Rite, get Tilson-Thomas in his Keeping Score series - outstanding performance, sound and camera work. This was really well produced - perfect sync zeroing in on players at the exact time they're playing their part.
About the above comments on extraneous noises - There is a Rattle/BPO with Barenboim playing Brahms' first piano concerto,where you can hear birds singing along throughout. Pity they can't edit these things out.
BUT - once again, get this for Bronfman!
