Fantastic music and performances, poor editing! July 9 2010
By T. Q. Nguyen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I am sorry to bring the rating of this product down. However, I think people who are considering buying this DVD should know what I experience. The performances are indeed wonderful, especially Bronfman's playing is larger than life. The sound and picture quality are great EXCEPT the sound and picture are not in sync most of the time, probably a result of integrating many camera angles. One would think the technologies nowadays would have no problem resolving the issue but it is not the case here. And this drove me nut, I had to close my eyes to enjoy the concert. If you want to see how bad it is, maybe clips on YouTube would give you some ideas. The picture is usually behind the sound in most views. The conductor's view seems to be the only one that is in sync with the sound.

Why go to a live concert anymore? July 24 2010
By A. Chung - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
I've been waiting for a live performance of a Rachmaninoff piece on Blu-ray for a long time and it's finally here! This is definitely worth it for Bronfman's powerful performance alone. The end of the third movement will leave you breathless and moved until he hits the very last note and the crowd bursts into applause giving a well-deserved standing ovation. Excellent video and sound quality bring the summer festival experience in your living room. Please bring more classical performances to Blu-ray!!! plleeaaassee

Bronfman's cadenza towards the end of the first movement of the Rachmaninoff concerto is worth it alone!!! so powerful!

Singing in the rain with sir simon and the waldbuhne volks Dec 28 2009
By R. Schaad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I had the great pleasure to be at this concert on father's day June 21, 2009 with my daughter. The sun was out for the first half but rain began during the intermission. Sir Simon and the Berlin Philharmonic began the concert with the opening of the Nutcracker by Tchaikovsky followed by the Rachmaninoff third piano concerto with Yefim Bronfman. During the intermission the rain began but the concert continued with the Stravinsky Rite of Spring with the rain on and off. The encore was the Pas de Deux from the Nutcracker with Sir Simon's comment about Singing in the Rain. The rain continued as the concert ended with the ever popular Berliner Luft. I sang along with the 20,000 plus listeners as we all Sang in the Rain. The concert was available for a short time on the Medici web site and it was broadcast live on the German RBB network of which I was lucky enough to get a copy. The broadcast included interviews with both Bronfman and Sir Simon. The only other Waldbuhne concert I know of with the rain was the Abbado concert of 1996, another classic. What we heard was, of course, coming from the loudspeakers which included twelvw sub-woofers so the sound we heard was similar to what is on the DVD. I own most of the Waldbuhne DVDs and this one will be one I will never forget.

Great playing, intrusive noise Aug. 9 2010
By Clive S. Goodwin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
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!

Rachmaninov Piano Concerto #3 - Berlin Philharmonic - Rattle - Blueray Nov. 28 2011
By W. Wilkin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
This is an excellent recording of the Rachmaninov #3. It was a live outdoor concert. The video was well done (but only 1080i). I bought it solely for the Rachmaninov and haven't listened to the other performances. This video convinced me that classical concert videos were worth buying.
