The video quality is excellent. The camera shots illuminated the various musical instruments, as they are highlighted. There is a tasteful and discrete amount of panning. This should now become the standard for all modern DVD recordings. The orchestra is a large one, almost overwhelming. However, the conductor, Daniel Barenboim, keeps them in perfect harmony, and the sound is rich and full. Both PCM Stereo and Dolby 5.1 options are available. The recording was made before a live audience, but there is unnoticeable distractions coming from this quarter. I look forward to future releases of the other Mahler¿s symphonies from Arthaus, particularly Symphonies #1 and #4 In all, this is a very satisfying and enjoyable experience for all Mahler fans, and for symphony lovers generally. A ''must buy¿ for DVD collectors of the Basic Repertoire of Classical Music.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
